The Greater Reston Arts Center is offering its first digital summer art camp. The program is geared toward children between the ages of 5 and 10. It includes guidance on how to make art through pre-recorded, instructional videos. The online program mirrors what is offered at the in-person program which was previously organized with Reston Association and will run for six weeks between June 29 and August 7.
The art camp includes a weekly collection of pre-recorded video lessons with a professional arts educator. Each activity, which will be 15 minutes or less in order to limit screen time, will also include written instructions. The camp also includes a camp-in-a-box kit with materials required for activities. A list of materials not included in the kit like scissors or makers will be available on GRACE’s website before the camp begins.

- June 29-July 3: My Mom Would Never Let Me Do That! (Ages 5-7)
