Summer Arts Camp


Petaluma Arts Center’s Summer Arts Camps include ceramics, drawing, painting, jewelry-making, cartooning and more! Experienced instructors provide a fun and supportive learning environment for young artists and artisans ages 5 to 12. Sign up for one session or more! Camps run from the end of June to the beginning of August! Scholarships available.

In accordance with the City of Petaluma, please review our new precautions put in place to assure your family’s safety.  Additional information and questions: Email us at

Safety Protocols
  • Enrollment is limited to 12 students per camp. All camps will meet at the Petaluma Arts Center classroom and instruction will be divided between time spent indoors and outdoors.
  • The same group of students will participate in each camp. No drop-ins are allowed
  • All staff and students must follow comprehensive daily health and safety protocols created in partnership with county healthcare professionals.

Hygiene Measures

  • Hand-washing stations and disinfectant will be available in the classroom. Dis-infections of “touch points” in the classrooms will occur daily at the start and end of each camp.
  • Teachers will handle student art materials only when absolutely necessary (and then only with gloves).
  • No more than one student can visit the restroom at a time.


  • All students will need to complete a daily health questionnaire.


  • Physical distancing will be necessary at all times.
  • Food sharing will not be allowed.
  • If students participate in morning and afternoon camps, lunch will occur outside at a designated space.


  • All staff and students are advised to wear masks when they are in common spaces and classrooms, whether physical-distancing or not. While it is anticipated this will be difficult to enforce with the younger children, it will be expected and required of older students. 

*All campers must bring completed PAC Emergency Form and Photography Consent form. Please bring these forms to the first day of camp. Forms must be filled out by a parent or adult guardian.

This class builds on the earlier black and white drawing series, bringing in the use of color.  Using colored pencils, gel pens, and other coloring tools, students will continue to explore techniques including line drawing, stippling cross hatching and various fill styles. Subject matter will again include free form abstract projects, warm up exercises, still life, working from nature on a small and large scale, and fantasy images. Don't worry if you didn't take the earlier class; you will still be right at home in this class.
