Nickel Plate Arts is looking for an instructor for our upcoming Adventures in Art Summer Camp happening this July. Scheduled in partnership with the Noblesville Township Trustee Office, this camp for kids ages 5-12 will be available to Noblesville residents for free. Kids will get their hands dirty and their heads thinking creatively over summer break while dabbling in 3D and 2D art-making processes. Registration is required for all camp participants with a limit of 20 campers per session. Camp will take place at the Noblesville Township Community Center at 372 8th Street, a short walk from the Nickel Plate Arts campus. Camp dates are split between two weeks: July 9-13 and July 16-20.

  • 2-3 p.m. – Little Artists (ages 7-9)
  • 4-5 p.m. – Tween Artists (ages 10-12)

  • Checking in campers at the beginning of each session
