About this Event
Each summer, the Museum’s classrooms and grounds come alive with the energy and excitement of art campers who are exploring the Museum’s exhibits through observation, drawing, creative writing, movement, and other innovative gallery activities. In turn, art campers create their own portfolios of amazing artwork inspired by the works on view, their gallery activities, and the unique theme of each summer camp session.
Art Camp for children ages 6-10 or 5-year-olds who have completed kindergarten:
Art Campers experiment with a variety of materials and ideas to create an amazing collection of artwork! In addition, campers explore the Museum's collection through drawing, creative writing, movement and other innovative gallery activities. This year, campers will participate in the creation of a collaborative art piece for the Museum's education wing. All sessions run Tuesday through Friday. Half-day and full-day options are available.
