ArtStart

Summer Art Program for Children

ArtStart is a summer art program for  children aged 4 1/2 to 9 years, offered in June and July.  ArtStart teachers are specialists in music, dance, theater, and art, most of whom teach throughout the year and are professionals in their fields.  

Activities include arts and crafts, theater, music, games, and storytelling. There is an informal performance at the end of each week’s session, and each child receives two tickets for caregivers or family member to attend. Camps run weekly from 9:00am‒12:30pm daily. Fridays are performance days, and camp releases at 1:00pm. Campers must bring a bag lunch and water every day. MAC members may register early in  person or by phone beginning January 21, plus a discount on ArtStart tuition. Public online registration begins February 1.

Note that current MAC membership at the Family level or above is required for discounted ArtStart tuition. If you are uncertain of your membership status, please call the MAC at (508) 748-1266.
