Education: Summer Art Camp

Summer is quickly approaching and the kids will soon be lounging around the house. The Quincy Art Center's classes are a great way to get kids off the couch, away from the video games, and get them engaged and learning while also having fun. Students will express themselves, get messy while creating, and meet other students with mutual interests!

Full youth scholarships are awarded based on need. Students enrolled in free/reduced lunch programs are eligible, or recommendations from teachers or administrators are also accepted. Please contact the Art Center for more information or to see if your child qualifies. REGISTER NOW!
