INFORMATION: Covid-19 Policies

Our summer art camp, opens-up a whole world of possibilities for your children. 

Hours Monday through Friday 10 to 2 pm

It allows kids ages 8 to 14 years to explore and grow their creative spirit.  We must admit that what truly makes the camp special is our fantastic instructor, Diane DeRogatis.  Diane is a certified art educator, having taught both elementary and high school art.  She has a unique talent for bringing-out the children’s innate talent in a fun and comfortable environment.  Having run the program for several years, she knows exactly what works. Diane, has a fun packed summer planned with loads of artwork to be created!  Camp activities include hands-on art projects such painting, sculpting with clay, and printmaking and so much more.  Art supplies are included and the building is even air conditioned!

We have changed the ages of  summer camp to 8 to 14 yrs old.
We are working on a separate summer camp for 5, 6, and 7 year olds. GNAL is also creating an extended day option for our summer camp from 2 to 4 pm. More information is coming soon.

Lunches and a drink are to be provided by the parent or guardian.

Masks are to be worn inside the building. This subject will be revisited as appropriate

To join in on the fun, sign up for one or more weeks throughout the summer.

Each week is $ 200 and will focus on a particular theme to keep project ideas fresh, new, and exciting.
