TCSE Art Camps: The Basics

The Ceramic Studio Etc strives to provide a fun and explorative art experience for budding artists! Our fun and creative camp staff will inspire artists to draw, paint, squish and splatter their way to a masterpiece each day. Every week we will explore: clay hand building techniques, fused glass introduction, ceramic painting techniques and art journaling. Depending on the theme for the week we may also sprinkle in: painting with acrylics on board or canvas, watercolor painting, mixed media collage, metal tooling, alcohol inks and more!

Every week has a minimum of 6 completed projects to take home; some of which may need to be picked up the following week after firing. However, campers can choose to leave all of their projects with us for our Tuesday Art Show! Every Tuesday evening from 5-6pm, we will have a mini art show where campers can show off their completed projects. Campers can pick up their projects and share their mini-gallery with their friends and family! Should you be unable to attend the Tuesday Art Show, we will hold camper projects for a later pick up.


Aside from our last week of camp, all camps are appropriate for artists entering 1st grade and up. Our Modern Art on Fire camp at the end of the summer is especially for ages 10 and up. We understand that every child is different, and may be mature for their age, however, our camps are geared to the ages specified (meaning it may be difficult to make some or most of the projects without more staff assistance). Please respect our age requirements.


Camp runs Monday through Thursday from 9am to 11:45pm. Artists are welcome to check-in starting at 8:50am and will need to be picked up no later than 11:45am. There is a $1/minute fee for late pick up, please let us know if you are running late.


$175 per artist, which includes all materials, firing of projects and Tuesday night Art Shows. Siblings receive a $15 discount when signed up for the same week.

What to Bring/Wear?

Art camp can be messy! We encourage artists to wear comfortable clothes that are ok to get stained or bring a smock t-shirt for when we use non-washable materials. A water bottle and snack labeled with artist’s name is also encouraged.

Cancellation Policy

If you cancel 2 weeks or more in advance you will receive a – 90% refund, If you cancel inside of two weeks you will receive a 50% refund. No refunds for cancellations with less than 7 days notice.

"It was our first time painting or even handling ceramics and we had a blast! The staff listened when we had questions and they answered them thoroughly."

"My daughter had her 13th birthday party here with friends. They did a glass fusing project. The staff was so attentive and helpful with the girls!"
