DUNEDIN – The Dunedin Fine Art Center’s Summer Art Academy will run from June 9 through Aug. 15, at the center, 1143 Michigan Blvd.

The Summer Art Academy provides exciting camp experiences for children 4.5 to 14 years old. Weekly themes provide different experiences for each camp. The offerings will include:

• Mini-Masters – Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to noon or 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., for ages 4.5 to 5.

• Sizzlin’ Summer / Visual Art – Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., for ages 6 to 10.

• Mural Madness – Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., for ages 8 to 12.

• Arts in Motion – Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., for ages 8 to 12.

• Art Squad – Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., for ages 11 to 14.

“More is better,” said Todd Still, director of youth education at the Dunedin Fine Art Center. This year the camp will offer programs for teens as well as separate Arts in Motion and Mural Madness Camps. “We’re trying to offer the breadth of programs that parents are looking for.”

Rebranding its summer camp programs as the Summer Art Academy, DFAC sought to reflect the quality of instruction that happens each week, with certified art instructors in most of the classrooms.

“Though we still refer to each week as a camp, parents agreed that the term ‘academy’ better reflects how our offerings differ from many camps in the area,” said Still.

George Ann Bissett, the executive director of DFAC, feels the camps are growing because of the positive experience the children are having.

“Studies show that children who study art, end up doing better in all of their studies,” Bissett said. “So that makes our programs pretty popular with parents, too.”

Scholarships and after-care and lunch are available.

Special March pricing is available through March 31 and early registration discounts end with an open house, set for Friday, April 25, 6 to 8 p.m.
