Teen Camps

Our 2023 summer camp is a mentorship program for teens (ages 15-18). Our skilled instructors are artists and art instructors working in their field of study who can share what it's like to be a working artist in Portland.


We focus on the process not the product and welcome all skill levels. Our camps celebrate individuality and self-expression and are open to anyone looking to enhance their artistic skills, learn from others, and find out more about becoming an artist in the modern world.

Activities will change from week to week, but each session will incorporate illustration, painting, printmaking and ceramics.
