2018 Summer Art Camps & Youth Intensives

Welcome to Art Camps!

2018 marks our 40th year of programming week-long summer art camps, where young artists have the opportunity to learn through making. Many camps combine artistic practices across mediums, allowing students to blend traditional forms with 21st-century techniques. With over 100 camps to choose from each year, PF/PCA’s summer art camp program continues to grow and serve the region’s ever-changing needs.

Art Camps for ages 4 - 18
Art Camps allow children and teens to explore a wide variety of mediums, often in an interdisciplinary setting. Campers work alongside talented teaching artists to learn new skills, develop their interests, collaborate with peers and create their own work. Each camp is offered to a specific age range and is tailored to the developmental needs of that group. Our high school programs are intensive project-based programs designed specifically for high school students. Highly trained and experienced teaching artists provide students with a college-like atmosphere to explore a variety of mediums. High school programs utilize both PCA’s fine arts studios and media labs, and Pittsburgh Filmmakers’ professional filmmaking and photography facilities.
