Virtual Winter Session of The League of Extraordinary Makers

Starts Wednesday, December 9!

"By far the best art class- drawing class. I’ve been to lots of classes where I have to copy. In this class I get options. I get to make the idea my own."--Josie, Member of the League of Extraordinary Makers

We welcome new students AND returning students to the League of Extraordinary Makers, Winter Session! Connect with other creative middle school makers to explore a range of art media while forging new pathways on our individual artist journeys. Be part of a group of creative and like-minded young people where your great ideas are welcome! We'll provide the art supplies for pick up. Taught by Emily Hemeyer, long-time Artscope teaching artist and extraordinary maker!

Our scholarships are based on need, and are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until we fill all available spots. A family may request up to two weeks of scholarship support each summer, per child. Scholarships must be requested by the parent or legal guardian of the participants. Families with multiple siblings are welcome to apply.

Our Summer Camp Create scholarship application is now open.  Check our Summer Camp Create page to find the application.
