SummerART at Van Vleck | Montclair Art Museum
(MAM) & Yard School of Art offer American, Native American, & contemporary art exhibitions, programs, & classes in NJ



These SummerART sessions, held exclusively at Van Vleck House and Gardens, invite campers ages 5–7 to create works of art inspired by the abundant plant and animal life that surrounds them. The secluded, historic garden is brimming with flora and fauna. From butterflies and beetles to birds and buttercups, there is much to explore!

Camp is held outside when weather permits, as well as in Van Vleck's spacious and air-conditioned Educational Center. SummerArt's fantastic teaching artists teach camp sessions, with projects including a variety of fine art materials and methods such as drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, and more. Students will have the opportunity to exhibit their work and celebrate what they've learned with family and friends at a closing reception held at the end of each session. Join us for summer fun in the Garden!
