Kids Art Summer Camp // Grades K – 3

We once again look forward to the return of Rochester Art Center’s longest running and most robust education program for young children, KASC. This program provides children the opportunity to experience creativity, innovation, and the joy of art making and collaboration in a welcoming studio environment.  Local artist and luminary Judy Onofrio established summer art camps in 1971 as an immersive contemporary art experience for students grades K – 3. The program continues to be a unique and memorable opportunity for young artists to explore transformative educational possibilities in a variety of artistic mediums. This is a terrific opportunity for all young people to engage with contemporary art—as shared and taught by the regions most talented professional artists!
