SummerART: Studio Art Camp Session 1

9:00 am
3:00 pm

Our in-person Studio Art Camp encourages experimentation, creative thinking, and skill development in a safe, fun, supportive and socially engaging environment with other creative kids. Campers receive personalized attention in age-specific groups led by our professional teaching artists. Classes will take place in our spacious studios and tented classrooms on the Museum grounds.

Each session is inspired by a different theme with exciting new projects providing age-appropriate challenges for campers to explore drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, and mixed media. Supervised lunch and recess take place outside with organized games and activities. Afternoons focus on specialized instruction in a different
art form, such as comic art or printmaking, so campers can sharpen medium-specific skills and develop their unique voice for creative self- expression.

COVID-19 safety guidelines for SummerART will be determined close to the start of camp based on CDC, state, and local guidelines and MAM policies, and are subject to change. Please check our Policies and Procedures for updates to our guidelines.

Session 1 Theme: Create Kindness
