The SummerART team is busy planning kids camps and teen classes in-person at MAM this summer with new studio art themes and classes, pottery camp, and more. 

Health and safety is our highest priority. Your child will spend the day in a small group art pod with other creative kids and MAM Teaching Artists. Classes will be held in our spacious studios as well as outside on Museum grounds, following CDC guidelines for COVID safety including mask-wearing and social distancing.

Can't wait for summer? Check out The Yard School of Art's in-person Spring Vacation Camps for students aged 6–8 and 9–12.

STUDIO ART CAMP (AGES 6-7, 8-9, 10-12)

MAM Studio Art Camp encourages experimentation, creative thinking and skill development as campers explore a variety of mediums and techniques—drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, printmaking and mixed media. Each session is inspired by a different theme or focus with exciting new projects that provide age-appropriate challenges. Classes are limited to 15 children, so campers receive personalized attention and assistance in finding their own voice for creative expression. In 2020, each camper received a kit of carefully curated art materials selected by their teacher in advance of their SummerART session, so they had all the supplies at home that they needed to get creative and have fun with MAM!  


Our 2020 Digital Media Camps guided students through the use of digital production tools, free apps, websites and open-source computer programs to bring to life a variety of original digital art projects. Classes are limited to 15 children, so campers receive personalized attention, skill-building support, and assistance in finding their own voice in becoming a cultural producer.
