Q&A with the Indianapolis Art Center Summer Art Camps:
What makes Indy Art Center Summer Art Camps unique?
Our camps and Teen Institutes are all taught by Teaching Artists. We offer camps at 2 locations, the Indy Art Center in Broad Ripple and the NEW Fishers Art Center (opening in June). Our art camps provide opportunities to work with various art mediums beyond just painting and drawing; there are camps in clay, fibers, photography, printmaking, glass and more.
The Indy Art Center is located in the heart of Broad Ripple, where campers work in professional studios, visit the art galleries, and explore the ArtsPark, 9.5 acres with sculptures overlooking the White River. For families in the Fishers area, the NEW Fishers Art Center is set to open in June at the new Fishers Arts and Municipal Complex with brand new state of the art studios.
What activities are offered at Indy Art Center Summer Art Camps?
Campers will work with our team of professional teaching artists to learn and practice techniques in the art studios, expressing themselves in a welcoming and creative environment!
What is the camper-to-counselor ratio?
Camper to adult ratio is 12-1, with teaching artists and camp counselors working together.
How much time do the campers spend outside?
There is a 30 minute snack and movement break worked into morning and afternoon camps. This is time for campers to connect with their peers and explore the art galleries and ArtsPark, 9.5 acres with sculptures overlooking the White River. Some camps may also execute lessons outdoors, like our Photography, Art in the Park, and Nature + Art camps.
Does the camp provide lunch/snacks, or do parents need to provide them?
Campers registered for both morning and afternoon camps within the same week should bring a lunch to enjoy in between. All campers should bring a snack and a water bottle daily.
What is the typical daily schedule for campers?
Campers are dropped-off and welcomed by camp staff with fun warm-up activities. Teaching artists then take their campers to the studios for hands-on art activities and demonstrations. A 30-minute snack and movement break is built into the day, then campers return to their art studios for more art making. Check-out process is similar to check-in, with parents driving into the east lot and camp staff takes care of bringing campers out to their cars. Camps end with a Friday Art Show, families and friends are invited to come into the building, visit all the studios and see all the art that was created!
How old are the counselors, and how are they trained?
Counselors can be as young as 18 years old, all with interest in the arts and prior experience working with youth. All camp staff will attend a camp training where we will cover safety, growth mindset, and classroom management topics.
What accommodations are made for campers with special needs?
We will work with families to discuss and determine what sort of accommodations may be needed for individual campers. Families are encouraged to contact our camp director to provide more information. They may also provide pertinent information during the registration process.
