Event Details

Embrace your inner-artist this summer! The Tett Centre for Creativity & Learning is delighted to offer an immersive 1-week summer program for kids ages 8-13 years old, in our arts-enriched, heritage building on Kingston’s waterfront.

The program is a fantastic opportunity to discover new mediums, build confidence, and find new ways of problem solving. Participants have the ability to explore a variety of art-forms including: metal rocks, pottery, weaving, felting, movement, liquid glass pouring, drumming, hand-stitching, improv, printmaking, puppetry, sculpture, and more, while engaging with local artists, community volunteers, and arts organizations who lend their expertise and resources on-site.

Our dynamic schedule provides 45 young artists, in 5 groups of 9, a diverse arts experience unlike any other in the city. On the last day, we proudly showcase all artworks made during a special open house for families and friends.

Arts at the Tett Summer Camp runs from 9:00am to 4:00pm Monday, August 10th through Friday, August 14th, 2020.

We want to thank our community partners: The Kingston Potters’ Guild, The Kingston Lapidary & Mineral Club, The Handloom Weavers and Spinners, Glocca Morra Studios,, Bethany Garner, Movement Market Kingston, Kylie Meyerman, Christina Maclachlan, Emberly Doherty and The Joe Chithalen Memorial Musical Instrument Lending Library.
