The Delaware Contemporary continues our mission to provide innovative summer programming for youth ages 7-13. We have recreated our Summer Camp programs and now offer the NEW Contemporary CREATORSPACE! These unique, week long opportunities offer youth a space to discover their creativity in a an environment that encourages self-expression through the arts. With the guidance of professional artists and art educators, your young artist will construct individual and collaborative projects that push traditional materials through non-traditional investigations and learn in a supportive and inspiring setting. Each week concludes with an art exhibition and reception for the participants and their guests to celebrate their creative achievements. We offer affordable half and full day options as well as before and after care PLUS each student makes their own custom T-shirt.



Selected Sundays, 1 - 3 PM | No registration required | All ages welcome!

The Delaware Contemporary's monthly Free Family Sundays are a great way to introduce children to new art concepts and expose them to the artistic process in a fun and inviting way. Enjoy guided family tours, classroom activities, and scavenger hunts throughout the galleries!

Returns for Peace Week, September 2018!
