Summer Art Camps

With summer break comes many things we love: sunshine, BBQ, swimming, fireworks, and so much more. But along with all these wonderful things is something most parents dread: bored children.


Luckily, the Arts Council of White Lake-Nuveen Center has got you covered. Throughout the summer we will be offering our affordable and educational Summer Art Camps for school-aged children. These 3-day classes are only $10 thanks to our sponsor, the White Lake Lothmann Family Fund of the Community Foundation for Muskegon County.
