Summer Notes

Welcome to the Guerilla Arts Summer Experience!

We are a Social Business and Think Tank community of teaching artists that can meet your staffing, programming, and educational consulting needs.

Washington, DC youth participating in Guerilla Arts’ Summer Boot Camp are in for intensive, creative learning experience. Now in its fourth year with DC Achievers and the College Success Foundation – DC, the Guerilla Arts Summer Boot Camp provides cultural arts programming to area high school students.

The program provides a hands-on, project-based approach designed and facilitated by an award winning professional staff of arts educators of various media and experience. In true Guerilla Arts fashion, all summer programs culminate with a student-produced performance that will showcase final projects and demonstrate the creative process employed during the camp.

The arts have proven to be an excellent vehicle to engage youth in learning, and Guerilla Arts has served thousands of students, in both school time and out of school time, with arts and cultural programming for the last 10 years.
