The goal of our Summer Arts Camp program is to help area children improve themselves while having fun engaging in art activities. Involving children in self-expression and creative discovery engenders an enthusiasm for learning that has a positive impact on each child’s development.

Over the past 21 years, the Summer Arts Camp has grown in popularity! This year more than 100 campers, grades 3 – 8 who participated in this program, had an opportunity to experience not only the visual arts, but also music, dance, and theater arts.

Here is what our Campers say about their experience:

"I like that we get to use oil pastels and paint to make beautiful portraits. I also liked that Mr. Simpson brought in (his own paintings) what he made for us." - Cassie Perry (Extreme Color Exploration Class)

"I got to learn a new instrument (violin) quick and fast and it was so easy! We got to play games that helped us remember the notes." - Samantha Mc Manus (Learn to Play the Violin Class)
The Arts Council is grateful for the support of the following sponsors: Maryland State Arts Council, Ocean City/Berlin Optimists Club, the Purnell Foundation, and the Ocean Pines Children's Players.

In 2014 Summer Arts Camp included 10 various art workshops instructed by professional art teachers or artists assisted by 15 volunteers. The volunteers are often teens who have enjoyed attending the camp in prior years or senior citizens who love the arts and find it rewarding working with children.

2014 ARTS CAMP VOLUNTEERS

Violin Playing Workshop with Miss Monika Lilley
The week-long camp culminates each year with a one-hour gathering of family and friends to view exhibits of the final works of art and to enjoy the performances by the music, dance and drama classes. The celebration allows children to enjoy an art experience that takes them from learning about the process of art form to designing their own original piece, and finally to showing or performing the finished product.

Campers participating in Mosaic Mania workshop, instructed by Ms.Stefanie Luicci, worked collectively on creating a design which will be soon installed in front of the Arts Council building for Community to enjoy!
