Summer Arts Under The Umbrella

Summer Arts Under the Umbrella 2018

Learning, growing, and experimenting through art is at the heart of what we do.

Our experienced instructors are practicing artists, arts educators, and teachers.

They share a love of their art with a keen awareness of the developmental needs of children and young adults.  We offer fine arts education for ages 5-12 and an excellent Counselor in Training program for ages 14-16.

Small classes ensure plenty of individual attention.  Each age group is led by one of our trained Assistant Teachers .  The AT gets to know each child and works to build a cooperative spirit within the group.

We offer arts for every interest.  Children have the opportunity to try Drawing & Painting, 2D and 3D Mixed Media, Ceramics, Digital Arts, Performance, Arts & Environment, Woodworking and More!


The SAUU 2018 Programs

Each week is unique with projects designed to engage your child’s creativity and artistic spirit.  Families may sign up for individual weeks on a ½ day or full day.

Counselor in Training Program for high-schoolers ages 14 – 16:

CITs are volunteer “counselors-in-training.”  The nature of the CIT program is for high school aged young adults ages 14-16 to develop a sense of responsibility through observation, participation, planning and implementation.  Both assistant teachers and CITs have the opportunity to be a great help to both the classroom teachers and the children in all of the classes.
