IN AN EFFORT TO SUPPORT OUR COMMUNITY IN THEIR RESPONSE TO COVID-19 AND TO KEEP OUR STAFF, FAMILIES, AND VOLUNTEERS SAFE, SUMMER CAMP SESSIONS FROM MAY 26TH THROUGH JULY 3RD HAVE BEEN CANCELED. REGISTRATIONS FOR SUMMER CAMPS SCHEDULED IN JULY AND AUGUST WILL BE TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

Regarding currently scheduled July and August camps, our staff is in the process of making plans for camps, and registrations will be taken on a WAITLIST only.

PLEASE NOTE: We will abide by the Open Safely guidelines and the governor’s announcement on June 1. This means we anticipate smaller class sizes, social distancing practices, and a new daily schedule. Camp will run approximately 6 hours per day in two-week sessions with no before or aftercare available. Breakfast and lunch will not be served and no field trips will take place. Young artists that are currently registered or on the waitlist will have priority for camp spots.

SESSION 5 | JULY 6 – JULY 10 | ART-LYMPICS

We’re hosting our own Summer Games in 2020! For this week-long camp, our young artists will team up with their age groups to compete in the first-ever Upturn ART-lympics. Through art-centered games, young artists will learn to work together to accomplish collaborative and creative goals—all while having fun!

SESSION 6 | JULY 13 – JULY 24 | TOUR DE MONDE

Grab your passport and travel to far off places! This camp will visit a different country every day. From the artistic traditions from different cultures, to foods from around the world, Young Artists will create visual arts projects and experience worldy culinary traditions without leaving the comfort of their own neighborhood.

SESSION 7 | JULY 27 – AUGUST 7 | LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION!

New Orleans isn’t nicknamed Hollywood of the South for nothing! This camp will focus on movie magic and animation and learn from a staff of seasoned and local actors, writers, designers, and producers to create a short film!

Young artists will also explore the history of stop motion films including the intersection of photography, film, and sculpture by making our own claymation video!

SESSION 8 | AUGUST 10 – AUGUST 14 | DREAM IT UP

If you can dream it, you can do it! During this camp, young artists will explore their wildest dreams and draw inspiration for projects from daily field trips around the city.
