ArtStart – Summer Art Program for Children

ArtStart is a summer art program for younger children (ages 4 1/2 to 9 years) offered during June and July and regularly enrolls 90 – 100 children.  ArtStart was founded by former Executive Director, Wendy Bidstrup in 1985.  Since then ArtStart has grown and is now serving a third generation of ArtStart campers.  TheArtStart staff consists of music teachers, art teachers, dance teachers, theatre arts teachers and various specialists who teach throughout the year.  All faculty members are professionals in their fields.

ArtStart meets on the premises for six weeks during the summer months on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings from 9:00 AM till noon.

There are songs and games at the beginning and end of the morning.  Activities include arts and crafts, theatre, music and stories.   There is an informal production at the end of each two-week session.
