Learn how art and science collide in this exciting camp for young minds. Students will experiment with color mixing, create optical illusions, experiment with safe chemical reactions, and observe nature while using a variety of art materials to create both 2D and 3D artwork. In this camp, students will utilize the Museum galleries as well as the sculpture garden and labyrinth.
The Michener Art Museum offers the only art classes in Bucks County where learners of all ages experience Museum exhibitions as an ongoing part of their arts education. Discussions and experiences in the galleries and sculpture garden inspire students to create original works of art in response to what they see. Individualized attention, small classes, and master teachers are hallmarks of exceptional programs that combine learning new skills with opportunities for creative expression and the development of a personal style. Students work in an environment rooted in inspired and supportive instruction, meaningful gallery experiences, personal observation, and imagination. Student work is exhibited in the Education Gallery throughout the year. All art classes at the Michener keep art at the heart of education.
