The Old Firehouse Summer Camp has you covered with eight (8) weeks of fantastic trips and memorable experiences for your child. Be sure to sign up early as these weeks sell out fast.

For your convenience, there are three ways you can register: online (click on the linked Activity Codes), by phone at 703-448-8336, TTY: 711) or at the Old Firehouse, 1440 Chain Bridge Rd., McLean, Va. 22101.

This camp is for any young artist with the desire to learn classical drawing. Previous experience is not necessary.

Join us as we welcome back Kerry Vosler and her highly regarded atelier studio for the fourth year! This in-demand workshop will introduce the young artist to a classical atelier program of instruction. Students will learn to draw through direct observation led by master instructor, Kerry Vosler.

Students will draw a series of pictures in charcoal throughout the week, including work from the late 19th century Bargue-Gérôme Drawing Course, culminating in a session with a live model on Friday afternoon. Students will have at least two finished portfolio drawings by the end of the week. Parents and families are encouraged to attend the closing certificate ceremony on Friday.
