At One River, every single camper will create a concept for their own project, receive support and guidance from the instructor, and have finished original work to exhibit at the end of the week. It is our goal that every camper leaves One River with art they are proud of, new friends and memories, and increased confidence in their artistic abilities.

What to Expect: Grades K-2 Camps

One River's half-day Grades K-2 camps are perfect for creative, young artists with big imaginations. Projects include elements intended to strengthen fine motor skills and teach campers to think about art in new ways.

Camp topics include Watercolor Underworlds, Avatar Masks, Making Monsters, Lifesize Aliens, Drawing Nature, and many more.

What to Expect: Grades 3-5 Camps

One River's half-day camps for 3rd-5th graders are designed to support and inspire artists at this exciting age. Kids of this age are often starting to define their own art style and view art-making as a central part of their identity. Our camps will encourage bravery in exploring new techniques and unique ideas, both in the art studio and the digital classroom.

Camp topics include Digital Cartooning, Fashion Design, Street Art, Drawing Realistically, My YouTube Channel, and many more.

What to Expect: Grades 6-12 Teen Camps

Our half-day teen camps are designed to teach and fine-tune artistic talent and solidify teens' perception of themselves as real artists. Teen campers will be tackling exciting and challenging projects with the help of our artist-instructors. Whether your teen is looking for a recreational experience or plans to pursue art as a career down the line, One River camp will be a great fit.

Camp topics include Architectural Design, Realistic Portraits, Digital Photography, Animation, Street Art, Cartooning, Manga, and many more.

What to Expect: Grades 10-12 Art Intensives

One River also offers an intensive two week portfolio program for 10th-12th graders. This program is designed to guide pre-college teens in creating a body of work that expresses their individual artistic personality and technical skills. Choose from drawing, painting, and portfolio development, or enroll in all three to develop a stellar collection.
