Samford University Academy of the Arts
Summer Camps 2023

The Academy of the Arts will offer three art camps this summer: Bulldog Art Camp for students who have completed first through fifth grade and Art Studio for Teens for students who have finished grades six through eight. Summer Art Camp is one week full of inspiration and creative expressions lead by our experienced art instructors. Students make meaningful art while they make new friends and have lots of fun. We look forward to seeing you at Art Camp 2023!

Bulldog Art Camp (Grades 1-5)
