Summer art camps for kids at KAG

Popular summer day camps at the Kelowna Art Gallery are taking registration now.

KAG summer camps for kids.

Registration is underway for the Kelowna Art Gallery’s summer art camps for children.

Art Adventures camps are organized for preschool children ages 3 to 5, and two separate camps are offered for children ages 6 to 8, and ages 9 to 12. Full-day camps, half-day camps, and morning-only “mini camps” are scheduled Monday through Friday, beginning July 4 until Aug. 26.

Leading the art camps and excursions to artists’ studios, Kasugai Gardens, Waterfront Park, the beach and nearby private galleries this year are two local artists and instructors, Asia Jong, and Victoria Moore.

During the camps, children can expect to develop skills in drawing, painting, printmaking, mixed media, and sculpture, while being inspired by exhibitions at the gallery. Scheduled guest artists play a pivotal role at each of the camps.

The cost for a week of Preschool Mini Camps (9 am to 11 am) is $90 for the general public, and $75 for members of the Kelowna Art; a week of Half-Day Camps (9 am to 12 pm) is $125, or $110 for members; and a week of Day Camps (9 am to 3 pm) is $160, or $145 for members.

For more information, or to register your child, please contact the Gallery at 250-762-2226 or view the camp information online at
