The Workhouse is proud to celebrate the 7th year of its Youth Arts Camp program, challenging the creativity in ages 3-17 since 2009. The Youth Arts Camp program at the Workhouse has exploded with great opportunities in Fine Arts all year round. Campers work alongside professional artists and excel in several mediums, learning various techniques and creating unique artwork with every visit. Take a second look at the tuition rates, do the math, and find most of their camps might cost less than a babysitter! With a one-week Spring, an eight-week Summer, and a series of Mini Arts Camps, no child is ever left without an avenue to explore their creativity. See offerings and register early for the camp at https://reservations.workhousearts.org/Info.aspx?EventID=5.
For those who aren't familiar with the Workhouse Arts Center, it has quite a storied past. Originally a reformatory turned medium security prison, the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, VA found home in brick architecture built in the early 1900’s. The Workhouse has since been revamped and repurposed to provide enjoyable entertainment experiences and serve hundreds of students in multiple visual arts media, such as: drawing, painting, mixed media, ceramics, glass and culinary arts! Discover this incredible camp for your budding artist this summer.
If your schedule or location doesn't allow for a Workhouse Art Center summer camp, definitely put this location on your staycation calendar! The best way to experience the Workhouse Arts Center is to take it at your own pace! For the adventurous types, they have provided a downloadable, printer-friendly, self-guided walking tour that takes about 45 minutes to an hour to complete.
This route highlights the artist studio buildings, gallery spaces, glass program, ceramics program, and the Prison Museum. The route is paved and flat, with the only set of stairs being in W-16 (there is also an elevator available) so this route is perfect for all ages and abilities.
