Halifax art camp

Our famously fun Halifax art camp explores a variety of themes that inspire curious young minds, as they participate in workshops and explore a whole new world of art and design, and learn social and educational skills.

Our summer kids camps include all materials, lunch supervision, early drop-off (8:30am), and late (5:00pm) pick-up. Students are each given a free NSCAD t-shirt to encourage an uninhibited art practice. Lunchtimes are not only supervised, they offer creative and engaging activities for kids of all skills levels.

Visit the Halifax Art Camp Exhibition, Port Loggia Gallery, NSCAD University, to see work created by the campers throughout the entire Summer.
