Students will learn a variety of sculpture techniques and use materials including wire, plaster, wood, air-dry clay, and recycled or upcycled materials to create their own unique sculptures inspired by art history and artworks in the Museum galleries and Sculpture Garden.
Need a full day program? Students may combine the morning Sculpture I camp with the afternoon Jewelry I or Art and Nature camp, and Lunch Option 4.
Students provide their own peanut free lunch and snacks for full and 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.
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.
