Art Student Academy 




After School Classes are now full day Saturday Art Camps


art camp 


New! We have moved our studio classes a few miles away from Wake Forest, back to our professional art studios in the country location, 2109 Old Mill Farm Rd. Franklinton, NC 27525!

Our mini farm, with its two art studios and menagerie of animals, has long been popular with our summer art camps and adult workshops participants.
Our students made us aware that the tranquility and uniqueness of our country location offered a rare glimpse into the life of a working artist. Our 3 day, all day, summer art camps for children ages 7-17 fill every time we offer them and both parents and children have expressed an interest in having more than once a year camps. So, we finally took your suggestions to heart!

So for 2015-2016, we have made some changes to our “after school” program!

We will offer 1 day, All day Art Camps once (or twice) a month rather than the traditional 1 hour, once a week format which averaged 4 hours of lessons a month!

Using the successful format of our summer art camps, our monthly art camps will meet from 9:30-2:30 on scheduled Saturdays (possibly we can add a weekday at some point). Just like our art camps, your child brings a bagged lunch, snacks and comes prepared to make a mess! We always have bottled water available.


$45.00   1 child
$85.00   2 siblings
$120.00 3 siblings
There is no additional supplies charge.

What do we do?
Children love to explore and they love Art. With that in mind, our Art Camp Program teaches a wonderfully diversified curriculum that includes a variety of mediums such as pastels, pencils, watercolors, clay, acrylic paints as well as unique and assorted craft supplies and techniques. Each session will also explore a different famous artist with some fun art history facts and anecdotes. From the simple to the complex, everything your child creates has both educational and creative value. Each camp's art activities will be different than the previous month's camp.

 Oh but wait-that's not all! We offer a bit of that “free range” experience so many parents experienced as a child :-) Lots of outdoor time including tree climbing, the secret maze, nature walks and old fashioned outside games. We operate as a one room schoolhouse and it's a great formula that offers a day of fulfilling art, camaraderie, games and activities for ages 7-17. Our amazing Intern artist assistants help in our classroom and with our outside activities.

We work our 1 day, once (or twice) a month Art Camps around our professional art show schedule so sign up for our newsletters to know when the camps are available.
