Kids Camps

2023 Camps information is coming soon!

Art Day Camps will run during February and Spring Breaks and Summer recess again this year.

Every summer and during some school break weeks, we run all-day art camps for kids aged 6 to 13. These programs have fun themes that introduce art techniques and creative problem-solving. We call them Art Day Camps, and these day camps are a fantastic way to strengthen your child’s art education and confidence in their own creativity. What do we teach in our camps and weekly classes? Check out this 2021 article in 585 Kids magazine for a sense of how and why our Camps encourage building drawing and painting skills while encouraging creativity.

Join us for Kids Create! Kids Create Dates are Saturday drop-in classes designed to focus on hands-on art making and fun! Enjoy a play date with creativity before, after, or while your family explores the museum. Stay as little or as long as you’d like. Projects vary each week. All materials included.
