Students will be inspired by photographs, their imaginations, as well as works of art in the Museum galleries to create their own unique works of art. Vast oceans with crashing waves, skyscrapers that seem to touch the clouds, and mountains and dense forests have inspired artists for generations. Students will learn a variety of techniques using acrylic and tempera paints, paper collage, printmaking, pastels and more in this morning art camp.
Students provide their own peanut free lunch for full day and snacks for half-day programs. Families and friends are welcome to come 15 minutes before the end of camp on Friday to enjoy an exhibition of student work in the Education Gallery and classrooms.
Need a full day program? Students may combine the morning Art of Land, Cities, and Sea camp with the afternoon Fur, Scales, and Tails: Animals in Art camp, and Lunch Option 4 to create a full day program.
Individualized attention, inspired and supportive instruction, small classes, meaningful gallery tours, and award-winning teachers are hallmarks of our exceptional arts programs. Through exposure to a variety of art forms and materials, all courses encourage the development of new skills and build confidence in creative expression. In addition, our summer camps provide opportunities for lively social interaction and outdoor activities. Student work is exhibited in the Education Gallery throughout the summer.
