Welcome to the Oxbow Summer Art Camp, a unique experience for 14 to 16 year olds who love art. At Oxbow, we don’t do busy craft projects. Our art-immersion program encourages the exploration of each student’s creativity and vision. We provide campers exceptional instruction in the fundamentals of a variety of mediums. Students then have the opportunity to design and create their own projects. Campers benefit from the Oxbow philosophy that there is no limit to what they can create given an environment of high-level instruction, encouragement, and support. Campers return home with concrete evidence of their progress and the realization that they are capable of making great art.
Oxbow is an art high school as well as a camp. While summers at Oxbow are devoted to camp and the adult institute, during the school year we are a very unique "semester" school. For the past 13 years, The Oxbow School has offered a one-semester, interdisciplinary visual arts-based program for high school juniors and seniors nationwide. Oxbow is built on the belief that combining rigorous studio art practice with innovative academics will strengthen students’ abilities in creative and critical inquiry. With this approach to learning, The Oxbow School is the only institution of its kind in the nation. Likewise, the Oxbow Summer Art Camp is also unique. Our vision is for our students to develop a stronger sense of identity, self-worth, and the confidence to embrace the responsibility for their own learning and lives.
