Think and Do Total Arts Day Camp (TADC)

With the arrival of spring—meaning summer is not far away—we once again look forward to the return of Rochester Art Center’s longest running and most robust education program, TADC. TADC provides children and young teens 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 Total Arts Day Camp in 1971 as an immersive contemporary art experience for students in grades 1 – 8. 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!

This year’s theme is EXPLORING MATERIALS, with our teaching artists presenting high-quality curriculum in a variety of artistic media. We’ll utilize everything from fine art materials to recycled objects to clay while discovering our own creative process and studying the work of iconic local artist and TADC founder Judy Onofrio, who will be exhibiting at RAC throughout the summer.

Thank you to everyone for making summer 2016 the best summer. Have a good school year, we’ll see you next summer!
