As parents prepare for the summer months, finding the right camp to enroll their children in is often a top priority. North Tahoe Arts (NTA) located in Tahoe City, offers a hands-on art experience for elementary to middle school age youth and is taught by accomplished local artists and instructors who are passionate about the importance of art in a child’s development.
Two, week long morning sessions will take place at the Boys & Girls Club in Kings Beach July 18-22 and July 25-29.
Local artists and instructors excel at teaching children the joy of ceramics, printmaking, painting, fiber art, earth art, book/journal making, jewelry, pastels, wire sculpture, and batik. This popular alternative to sports camp teaches children new techniques in self-expression. The student/teacher ratio is small, insuring that the children receive the benefit of individual instruction in addition to the attention from volunteers who assist with the classes.
And, art is fun! And, often time it is messy, which children love.
Two, week long morning sessions will take place at the Boys & Girls Club in Kings Beach July 18-22 and July 25-29, offered by North Tahoe Arts, a non-profit organization that has been promoting and supporting the arts in the Truckee-Tahoe communities for 25 years.

“Kids Art Camp is a signature program at North Tahoe Arts going into its seventh year. This NTA tradition is a great non-sports camp option that has been popular due to the talented instructors’ true passion to explore the wonderful world of art with young children. As we see continuous cut-backs in our public school programs, we’re working diligently at NTA to keep art programs alive and affordable for everyone,” says Kellie Cutler, executive director, North Tahoe Arts.
