This 8-week series of after-school classes focuses on art media exploration and concepts suitable for 7- to 10-year-olds. Young artists will be creatively inspired by the exhibitions on view at the museum during the spring term, and will make artwork that draws upon what they see in the galleries.

Fun art lessons and activities will include:

  • experimenting with encaustic wax medium
  • using modeling material and wood to build miniature sculptures
  • mixed media projects using ink and acrylic paint
  • drawing and sketching work, plus plenty of painting

Students will learn the language of art while they discuss the art they view in the museum, and then they'll express their creativity and discoveries through unique individual projects they can take home.

What better way to spend a week out of school than exploring and learning at your local art museum? This fun, creative camp is an awesome opportunity for your student to enhance their creative skills, make exciting art projects, and learn about art history and theory!

Art camp students will take tours of the museum and learn about current exhibitions from our talented, knowledgeable art educator Virginia Wood. They'll paint, draw, and built artwork inspired by what they've learned and while building on skills like color mixing, cutting, drawing, and designing.

These camps often sell out, so don't wait! Class sizes are limited to ensure every child gets lots of individual attention, so you won't want to miss out on this fun, engaging week of art!
