Summer Art Camp

About Summer Art Camp

Harwood Art Center, located in downtown Albuquerque, offers multi-disciplinary summer art camp for youth entering grades 1-9. Since 1996, Harwood’s summer programing has fostered creativity and curiosity in young artists of all skill levels. We offer four two-week sessions throughout June and July with full and half day options.  

At Harwood Summer Art Camp, campers in grades 1 - 9 will immerse themselves in the arts with a group of inspired peers and accomplished instructors. They will experience a range of exciting activities in a positive, supportive atmosphere. From ceramics and painting, to theater and music, imaginations are unleashed. Summer Art Camp opens doors to new experiences and creative innovation, engaging students in the visual and performing arts. It is an adventure your children will remember for years to come!

OUR STAFF

Our Teaching Artists and Guides share our commitment to lifelong learning and creative expression, and they all have experience working with children. Our Teaching Artists are accomplished in their diverse fields and maintain professional artistic careers. Teaching Artists and / or Guides are present throughout all activities, providing enrichment, support and supervision at all times.

LUNCH

Students are required to bring their own sack lunch and snack (one for morning and one for afternoon) with them to camp. We are a nut free campus, so please don't send nuts, nut butters or any snacks with nuts in them. In the past we have been able to offer sack lunches for purchase through the Harwood Cafe. The cafe is currently in transition and we aren't sure yet it this will be an option. Once we know, we will post more information here and send out an email to all registered families.

HARWOOD STORIES

SUZANNE SBARGE
SUZANNE SBARGE

Former Director of Harwood

When I started the building was primarily a studio center for artists with very little public programming. The only staff members were the Building Manager Marshall Kovitz and me, and we were both part-time. I worked to expand the reach of Harwood through lots more exhibitions, classes and events, and the Harwood Summer Arts Camp. I focused on community involvement and marketing, which transformed Harwood from a mostly quiet studio center into a public venue that was always buzzing with activity.

I am grateful to the Harwood for launching my career in arts administration over 20 years ago and for serving as the umbrella for 516 ARTS in our first year.
