Oxbow Summer Art Camp

Visit Website Request Info
At Oxbow Summer Art Camp we bring together an inspiring group of artists who are passionate teachers, learners, and creators. We build a safe, open-minded community in which all participants can deeply engage in the studios and activities. Our program supports campers in discovering and developing their art practice and sense of self. We believe there is no limit to what teens can create given an environment of high-level instruction and support. No portfolios or previous art training are requiredjust the desire to dive in and see what happens!

Based on Oxbows semester model, the camp program is focused on creating project-based art. The first week, campers learn a variety of techniques and explore their conceptual ideas. The second week, studio time is devoted to a personal project. Campers select a topic, their medium of choice, and work closely with staff to bring the idea to fruition. They engage all steps of the artistic process, from idea to creation, critique, and exhibition. 

We value a balance of commitment and play in all aspects of our program. We create an environment where campers enjoy being away from home, explore their independence, and make new friends. Each day, campers mix studio time with participation in activities like Inspiration Evenings, skit nights, campfires, yoga, outdoor films, Art Olympics, and visits to Bay Area galleries.
