    Mastering the art of summer fun!

    Young artists are invited to develop their creativity in a museum setting through our popular Art Camps. During each one-of-a-kind week of project-based camps, young people have the opportunity to explore various art materials, acquire new art-making techniques, and develop their critical thinking and problem-solving skills under the guidance of a teaching artist.

    Each summer, ICA San Diego hosts six sessions camps offering different art experiences based on current art trends. Beyond progressing in their art, students spend time outdoors either exploring Balboa Park (ICA San Diego / Central) or around our 6-acre of natural preserve (ICA San Diego / North), meet new friends, and leave each day with lifelong memories.

    Scholarships available here!
