Celebrating 56 years of commitment to visual arts excellence, the Summer Art Studio offers an in-depth experience for middle and high school students. Classes are offered in a variety of media and subject areas and are all held in the well-equipped art studios of UW-Green Bay. Middle school campers will experience two unique mediums. They will have the opportunity to choose a morning and an afternoon class. High school campers focus in only one area, allowing for an immersion experience in that art genre. In addition, there are many opportunities for interaction with other campers and faculty. Critiques, slide lectures, field trips, and a final exhibition all encourage exchange of ideas and styles.
Faculty and guest instructors are drawn from the ranks of UW-Green Bay and the surrounding region. All are highly-respected, professional artists who are also excellent teachers.
"This was my daughter's third year with the summer camp and she has had nothing but great things to say about her experiences. She beams with joy and inspiration each and every day she attends. Her experiences at summer camp reaffirms her commitment to her love for the arts. Each year she has attended summer camp she has lofted herself to a higher level of artistic talent. As her father it gives me great pleasure to see her joy, her inspiration, and continued commitment to what she loves so much. All of this is so much a result of her experiences at camp. I applaud what you are doing for our children, your efforts and expertise are a true example of how important the arts are to our children and the end result in my mind is improving my daughter's quality of life. We will be back next year and the years to come."

Middle School campers register for both a morning and an afternoon class. High School campers register for one course during the week, allowing the camper to focus on one medium or subject area in depth. Campers will also attend special lectures given by working artists.
