December Break at Saratoga Arts
Monday, Dec. 27-Friday, Dec. 31

Located in the heart of Downtown Saratoga Springs, Saratoga Arts is a hub of arts education for young artists and anyone interested in learning new techniques and sharpening their craft. For Holiday Break @ Saratoga we have brought together adept teaching artists with decades of experience to ensure our students learn new skills while creating challenging works (and of course having a ton of fun!).

Throughout the December break students will have opportunities to explore artistic areas that they are familiar with and be introduced to new areas that they may not have tried before.  Kids will have fun either way, and help pass those long days of school break in a structured and stimulating environment that keeps them happy and entertained.  Whether your child wants to spend their whole day immersed in our visual arts camp with changing daily themes and mediums, or learn in our Music Theater Intensive Workshops, Teen Art Studio or our new and exciting Dungeons & Dragons Cosplay Adventure Workshop - they are sure to find something they love.    Find out more below and see what Saratoga Arts can offer your talented tike, tween or teen!

MONDAY, December 27 - FRIDAY, December 31

9:30AM - 4:30PM


INSTRUCTOR: Christian Wechgelaer

Since the dawn of time drawing has been the key to visual communication. From cave paintings and illuminated manuscripts to comic books and cartoons, drawing is as boundless as imagination itself.  Teens in this camp will make drawings based on stories and write stories based on drawings, use experimental processes like kitchen lithography to create multiple iterations of the same drawing, and even create animations by photographing drawings in stages.  Worlds will be created and discovered, as each student embarks on their own quest pencil in hand.  


Price for members: $310 members/ $345 non-members
