Sara Leo

Sara Leo, the camp’s creative director and lead teacher, has been working with the center for 10 years.  


The Carpinteria Arts Center’s annual summer arts day camp begins this week, in-person for the first time since Covid-19 began. 

This will also be the camp’s creative director and lead teacher Sara Leo’s 10th year working with the center. Leo is a visual arts educator at Adams Elementary School. 

“Sara Leo’s new ideas and unique creative projects have really taken our camp to the next level over the years,” operations manager Kristina Calkins said. “We are thankful for her passion and commitment to sharing the arts with the youth of our community.” 

The camp will run for seven weeks, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. each day. Each week is geared toward children ages 6 to 12; all supplies, snacks and camp shirts will be included. Campers must wear masks. Scholarships are available. Learn more at
