1st Session June 22-27 from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. 2nd Session August 3-8, 2020, 10 a.m.- 3 p.m. $100 per student each week (if more than one student per family, let's talk about the additional fee)



     Astoria Art Loft will host two one-week-long summer camps featuring art and music for children (ages 7-8 through 12-13) to be held at ath Art Loft, 106 Third Street, Astoria.  The camps will be held on June 22-27 and August 3-8, 2020, 10 a.m.- 3 p.m.  The cost for each week-long camp is $100 and some scholarships are available.  All materials will be supplied.   

     Art activities and music activities are scant in local public elementary and middle schools, even though research shows a positive correlation between success in reading and math with art/music activities and experiences.  A summer camp emphasizing art and music may encourage growth in academic studies and interest in cultural activities.

      Each camp runs for 6 days and children are expected to attend all six days.  The sixth day of each camp, a Saturday, is show-n-tell for parents, family members and friends to see and hear what the children have accomplished.  Refreshments are part of the celebration,

      Parents or adult family members are invited to participate in the art/music activities and thereby, encourage and support their children.  Seeing adults doing and enjoying art and music may provide rich role models.  Involved parents may be more likely to take their children to see and hear concerts, plays, and other cultural events during the year.
