the Youth Arts Series Presents Summer Art Camp 2023

Program Description: The Youth Arts Series (YAS) annual Summer Art Camp is back for its 6th session! Keiki will join our talented local artists for creative adventures. In this year's summer session, the YAS team of skilled instructors will guide young artists through the process of learning a variety of mediums. Our student artists will create their own works of art while learning basic technical skills behind each medium. 

YAS will be rolling out more summer classes in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
