Materials Pick-Up/Drop-Off

Masks are required when in VisArts' facilities.

  • VisArts Online camp is committed to giving your child the most in-depth and hands-on camp experience possible. We will therefore be providing all campers with the majority of the materials they will need to participate in camp. There is no additional cost for our Materials Boxes. Materials can be picked up in our 3rd floor administrative offices, located at 155 Gibbs Street Rockville, MD, 20850. If coming into our offices poses a problem for you, or you need different accommodations, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us at 301-315-8200. Please make sure you select the sign-up sheet of the week(s) for which you are registered. Please note, if you are signed up for multiple, non-consecutive weeks, we may not have materials available for the later week(s). Materials are ordered and packed on a rolling basis throughout the summer, and materials may not be picked up any earlier than 2 weeks before each camp. All extra materials may be kept at the end of the session, however, those willing to donate their gently used materials back to VisArts may do so. We have done our best to cut down on packaging, but we encourage you to recycle packaging materials at home or return them to VisArts for reuse/recycling. The quantity of materials provided will be based on what the curriculum calls for, please help your students use materials responsibly so they have all they need for their projects throughout the week. VisArts is NOT able to provide ‘a la carte’ materials. Parking Information: There are three parking garages in the square. Garages A, B, and C. The closest and most convenient garage to VisArts is garage C, which is accessible via North Washington Street. VisArts validates parking (up to 2 hours) for all garages located in the square.
  • Students will make a variety of different projects that may need to be brought back to VisArts for glazing and/or firing. This process will be overseen by VisArts staff in its entirety. Projects should be brought in to VisArts facility for their completion and will be ready to be picked up two weeks later. Drop-off  and pick-up will not be curbside, you must bring/retrieve your pieces from the third floor administrative office. Glaze tickets have been emailed, and are also available on the sign-up sheet. Please remember to include a ticket with each piece that you bring in to fire. For those that have been painting with underglaze, pieces will be coated with clear glaze unless otherwise specified. For those pieces that students wish to be glazed using one color (not underglazes) please specify which color on the ticket. Please see this useful video for advice on how to properly pack dried ceramic pieces for transport. Drop-off days are Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Times are specified on the sign-up sheet. Pieces will be kept in our facilities for FOUR WEEKS after the two-week firing period. After this date, we cannot guarantee that pieces will still be available for pick-up. Please see below for the link to the sign-up sheet.
