Art & Jazz Summer Camp 2017

Summer Days of Art, Music, Singing, Doll Making, African Martial Arts, Dance, and Creative Exploration!

The William Grant Still Arts Center’s Art and Jazz Summer Camp is a six-week day camp that runs each summer!  All camp sessions are led by professional artists, musicians, and educators (who also teach at the Center through the rest of the year). Campers take part in a variety of workshops and classes throughout the day, including yoga, dance, music, and art. Field trips take campers out into the city, visiting great cultural locations including the Underwood Family Farms, Bob Baker Marionette Theater, Echo Park Recreation Center, California African American Museum, California Science Center, The Getty Villa, Palisades Recreation Center, and more! Camp concludes with a culminating concert and exhibition demonstrating the fun skills children learn from WGSAC’s professional artist-educators.  Art and Jazz Camp is scheduled yearly to coincide with LAUSD’s summer break schedule for the convenience of parents and for the benefit of kids.

Registration will be held beginning June 10 in person at the William Grant Still Arts Center, and will continue on a space available basis.  Due to limited space, registration is on a “first come, first served basis” and camp typically fills up on the first day registration opens. Parents will be given a number upon arrival time at registration and applications will be processed based on the assigned number. It is advisable that you come on the first day of registration when registration opens. Financial assistance is available to a limited number of  families who are in need.
