First-rate art education and flexible scheduling are helping families make the most of the season at Tyler State Park in Richboro.

Tyler Park Center for the Arts Summer Art Camp provides affordable day camp sessions for children from 5–18. Each session runs for a week; the first begins June 23. Registrations are accepted throughout the summer, as space allows. No previous art experience is necessary for most classes. Class sizes are kept small to ensure that each camper receives individual attention.

“Art is obviously our charter, but we are especially proud to serve our community through summer day camps that provide high-quality art instruction,” says Jennifer Miller, the executive director of Tyler Park Center for the Arts.

“The Tyler Park Summer Art Camp is unique in that our instructors are professional artists and educators. We have iconic Bucks County artists sharing their knowledge and skills with our campers week after week,” Miller says.

Renowned Bucks County painters and lifelong art educators Oz Freegood and Renee Egan offer various drawing and painting classes; while Gloria Kosco teaches mixed media sculpture.

A professional photographer with an M.A. in education from Temple University, Stephen Monastra takes older children beyond the selfie in Digital Photography for Teens during the week of June 30.

Ceramics, glass, fashion, beading, and mask-making round out the summer’s offerings. Children are welcome to enroll for a week at a time, for full or half days, and before- and aftercare is available. “We’ve designed our day camps to be flexible. We know that families have busy schedules and set vacation plans. That’s why our weekly camp tuition is the same whether a child is registered for one week or all nine,” Miller notes.
