Latcham Art Centre is having a fantastic summer! Our Art Camps are a big hit, and the children are always coming into the studio excited to create and learn more from our professional artist-educators. At the end of Friday, the students have an art show in the studio to showcase and celebrate all their hard work and dedication during the week to their families. This is such a memorable moment for the students and their families!

In addition to Summer Art Camp, here are a few exciting upcoming programs:

Youth Open Studio (Ages 12 – 16)
