The Staunton Augusta Art Center is pleased to offer KIDS CONNECT | ART OUTDOORS -  a series of fun-filled weekly field trip excursions throughout July for children (ages 6-12).   These outings will combine diverse local experiences with artistic activities. Students will have the opportunity to engage with educational representatives from each organization as well as a trained art instructor.


Week 1: July 5-9

Week 2: July 12-17

Week 3: July 19-23

Week 4: July 26-30 - session filled 

  • Each weekly session costs $75/child (10% discount for SAAC members). A limited number of need-based scholarships are available. For more information, please contact Carolyn Maloney at

  • Hours are 10 am to noon daily.  Children will need to be dropped off by parents or guardians at the destination site. 

  • Thursdays and Fridays will be held in the R.R. Smith Center garden.

  • Kids are welcome to attend multiple sessions; however, the weeks will be essentially a repeat of the same programs and projects. 

  • In the event of inclement weather, classes will be held indoors.

  • Spaces are limited, so please register early. Payment required at time of registration.

          ***This new program was designed as a fun and healthy arts program during pandemic restrictions.  Our year summer art day camp - Summer Studio - is due to resume in 2022.***
