The Mayflower Arts Center is pleased to unveil its FIFTH season for our young artists this summer! Each art camp is designed to heighten the imaginations of our young artists through creative and technical exploration. Artists will incorporate the techniques they learn through both individual and collaborative works. At the conclusion of the camp, each artist will have the opportunity to present and exhibit their creations in a Gallery Exhibit/Artist Reception on Friday evening. The Gallery Exhibit will be open to the public. Friends and families are always encouraged to attend.
