Art Camp

Art Camp


Join us this winter! Campers will have fun looking at, talking about, and making art with a team of creative museum educators and artists. These workshops introduce techniques that teach campers to express themselves through drawing, painting, and mixed media. Each day includes gallery activities and the viewing of original works of art, a one-hour lunch break, and creative studio projects. Each week culminates with a mini art display of campers work!

Enrollment for Winter Art Camp opens on October 10.
