Total Arts Day Camp is all about building young artist’s skills and confidence in the visual arts. Created in 1971 by artist Judy Onofrio, we are pleased to continue her legacy of learning and creativity for students ages 6 - 13. 


At Total Arts Day Camp (TADC) your child will engage in creating their own artworks, learning from professional artists, and thinking about the world around them. Students will gain skills in painting, drawing, mixed media collagé and more! They will tour the galleries, go on a public art scavenger hunt and explore why and how artists use different materials. Every Friday we’ll offer parents the chance to gather for a showcase presented by the students where they will display their amazing creations. Sign up and explore the Arts at the Rochester Art Center!
