ARTSOUTH CREATIVE ARTS SUMMER CAMP
ArtSouth’s Creative Arts Summer Camp provides youth ages 6-15 with a multi-disciplinary program at Miami Dade College Homestead Campus. Campers attend a full day of training with all materials and supplies provided. Campers work under the professional guidance of local artists, certified teachers and professionals in the fields of visual arts, dance, music and performance.
“It was an amazing camp! We’ve attended the camp for three years and we will be back next year for sure!”
“I was very, very impressed with the camp. This is my son’s first year here. He attended everyday, excited with the things he learned from art and dance. He even got into music! He was never into music, he liked video games. But now, he loves Grease and wants to watch it. It was amazing and I’m happy he enjoyed it.”
“I’m amazed with this beautiful place! They were fantastic with the children. My kids were crying because they don’t want to leave. They are definitely coming back. Thank you. Thank you so much. You guys did a fantastic job, especially the directors and the teachers. Everyone was fantastic, thank you, thank you.”

ArtSouth’s artists-as-teachers and professionals in the field provide after school, summer camp, no-school holiday and weekend workshops, field trips, and year-round classes for children, ages 4-17. ABC provides a nurturing safe learning environment during non-school hours for families that live within South Miami’s surrounding South Miami Community Redevelopment Area (SMCRA), in homeless shelters, teen shelters and programs for children with disabilities.
ArtSouth strives to fill the gap in public school art education by providing necessary arts education for children living in under-served environments. We seek to improve the lives of these children by offering no-cost arts education which includes free instruction and all materials and supplies.
ArtSouth's Service-Learning program provides positive, meaningful cooperative arts experiences that promote skills associated with teamwork and community involvement and citizenship.
ArtSouth hosts several local schools to join their Service-Learning Program. This highly successful curriculum brings school students to ArtSouth to learn music, singing, dance, painting, ceramics or folklore crafts from ArtSouth artists-as-teachers. The students then go out into the community to teach what they have learned to senior adults and provide services for children with special needs.Volunteer
