Our 2013 summer camp marked the 10th year of our summer camp program! This year's summer campers included California natives living and creating alongside others from St. Louis, Beijing, Bali, Seoul, Memphis, Mazatlan, and Santo Domingo!

Both sessions, campers immersed themselves into their artistic practice in the studios and played hard in our co-curricular activities. Among our counselor team we had three semester alumni and a former semester teaching assistant. Also noteworthy, is the exceptional dedication of our summer faculty members, one returning to camp for her 7th summer and another for his 8th!

To see the program photos check out our Facebook and Tumblr pages.

The planning for our 2014 summer camp program has begun! More details will be on our website shortly. Additional program information and photos can be found under the Summer Camp tab on the school website at www.oxbowschool.org.

Our art-immersion program for teens encourages the exploration of each student’s creativity and vision. Teaching artists will provide instruction in drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, video, and photography. Students will then have the opportunity create a personal project of their own design. No prior experience or portfolio required - just a desire to jump in, try new things, and see what happens!

2013 Summer Sessions:
Session 1: June 29 - July 14
Session 2: July 20 - August 4

Additional camp details and registration can be found under the “Summer Camp” tab on the school website at www.oxbowschool.org. Help us get the word out by "liking” us Oxbow Summer Art Camp on Facebook!

See you at the “Oxbubble” this summer!

Our 2012 summer camp was a fun-filled, amazingly creative collaboration between staff and students. This year, we had campers attend from hometowns just a few miles away to as far as Paris, Vancouver, and Tokyo! During their time at camp, students immersed themselves into their artistic practice, making remarkable work over the course of just 16 days. Both the campers’ artwork, as well as photos from our various activities, can be seen on our Facebook page at: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Oxbow-Summer-Art-Camp/70622731482

In July, we also officially launched our Oxbow Summer Art Camp Tumblr page! Check it out at: http://oxbowsummerartcamp.tumblr.com/

We will soon be diving into planning the 2013 summer camp program. More details will be on our website shortly, but for those of you eager to mark your calendars the dates for next summer are listed below. As always, if you know young artists who want a taste of what a semester would be like, have them contact us for registration information.

2013 Summer Camp Dates:
Session 1: June 29-July 14
