Summer 2021 Art Camps (PPS)

DUE TO OVERWHELMING INTEREST IN THESE PROGRAMS AND PROXIMITY TO CAMP START DATES, YOUNG AUDIENCES HAS  CLOSED OUR APPLICATION WINDOW.

As per Portland Public School’s guidelines for Summer Enrichment, Young Audiences will reserve a percentage of our spaces specifically for students who qualify for Free and Reduced Lunch and for students who identify as BIPOC, though we cannot promise a space to any families at this time.

Get ready for a summer break filled with color and creativity. Our popular Teaching Artist programs have become week-long Art Camps with the goal of connecting kids with their natural creativity for a great day camp experience.

Talented teaching artists and classroom staff members will introduce campers to a variety of different art media through open ended exploration and project work.

Who Can Apply

Students who are currently registered in a Portland Public school (ages 6-11) and have completed kindergarten. 

Your application is not confirmed until you receive a confirmation email from Young Audiences confirming your spot. We will not be able to accommodate all applications and will inform families by 6/25. Thank you for your understanding.
