With a desire to promote growth for artists of every skill level and medium preference through instruction, experience and community, the Arlington Artists Alliance has reestablished the Arlington Artists Academy (formerly at Cassatt’s on Lee Hwy.) presently in the upper level at Gallery Clarendon on the corner of Clarendon Blvd. and Fillmore Street. Instruction opportunities for all artistic abilities and ages are available. Yes, that means even those who swear they’re unable to draw a stick figure.

Creative Art Camp

Creative Art Camp takes place for four weeks each summer offering Morning, Afternoon and Full-Day sessions. We offer specialized lessons in Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Ceramics, Sculpture, Book Arts, Fiber Arts and Mixed Media Collage. All of our teachers are practicing artists and art teachers, and we add new lessons as we continue to expand our staff.

The Arlington Artists Academy offers a Creative Art Camp to two groups: Guppies: rising 1st graders to rising 4th graders and Koi: rising 5th graders to teenagers. We separate our younger students from our older students in order to allow for more focused instruction. Due to this structure, some sessions do sell out. Each week of camp is represented by an online gallery featuring the impressive work of each student.
Sample lessons include: Charcoal and Pastel Drawings,  Watercolor Painting, Acrylic Painting, Paper Marbling, Book-Making, Paper Mobiles, Sculpture, Mask- Making, Ceramics, Weaving, Wire Sculpture, Shadow Boxes, Sand Painting, Screen Printing, Fiber Arts, Jewelry Making, Tie Dye T-Shirts, Painted Aprons, Recycled Object Art and much more!
