Attention, artists! The deadline to sign up for the Fine Arts Camp is March 4.


Our teachers will offer targeted instruction to elementary students to help them flex their creative muscles in art, theater, dance and music. The camp is free to attend and runs during the last half of spring break – Monday, March 28 to Friday, April 1 from 9 a.m. until noon. Eligible students must be in grades 1-6.


“This camp is designed to feature fun, hands-on projects and performances that students can take advantage of,” said David Newman, IPS Fine Arts Instructional Coach. “The instructors are not locked into a particular curriculum, but they are free to collaborate with the other fine arts teachers and present projects and activities that will be lasting and meaningful.”


Camps will be hosted at the following schools:

  • Eleanor Skillen Elementary School 34- located at 1410 Wade St., Indianapolis, IN 46203
