Art Classes for Kids

Classes are available for registration! We’ve got a wide range of offerings for kids of all ages. From pottery to theater, there is something for everyone. Class age limits are a guideline, so pick the class your young artist will feel the most creative in.

Summer Camp at the J

June 27 – July 1 

Spend some of your summer break getting creative at the J! Young artists sign up for a week-long program and can choose between a Morning Sampler Camp to try something different each day, or the Afternoon All-Out, focusing on one art form all week.

Morning Sampler Camp – 10:00 – 12:00

Each group of kids stays together as a class and visits a different workshop each morning.  Including: Ceramics with Pam Fredback, Watercolor Painting with Danielle Shellamer, Mixed media and Recycled Objects Art with Wendy Reavill, and Felting with Leslie Ann Bestor.

Lunch Option – 12:00 – 12:30

Students that are participating in both the morning and afternoon camps can bring their own lunch and will have a supervised lunch break down on the patio outside. We do not currently have a cafe, but lunch can be ordered from our neighborhood cafes like Avenue Bread and the Lynden Dutch Bakery.

Afternoon All Out – 12:30 – 2:30

Artists in the afternoon groups will stay in the same class all week for a bigger project. This is a deep dive into one art form, a chance to learn a lot in one area!
