Kids Camps for Summer 2022

Build your child’s art education & boost their creative confidence!

Registration for summer camps has started! Students registered online should fill out the permissions form.

Every summer 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 this summer we will offer 8 weeks of the program. We will also have 3 weeks of clay camp held in a one-week format. We will also collaborate again with Writers’ & Books to offer 2 one-week camps combining art and writing.

During school breaks each year, we offer Art Day Camp by the day or by the week. These short art 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?

You can read this 2021 article in 585 Kids magazine for a sense of how and why our teachers encourage building drawing and painting skills while also keeping creative.

Kids Create Dates

On hiatus for the summer – they’ll begin again on September 24!

Kids Create Dates offer fun and flexible creative art projects you can make before, after, or while your family explores the museum. Projects vary but are often inspired by the museum. Preregistration required. All tools will be supplied for a play date with creativity!

Birthday Parties

NOTE: We are taking a hiatus for the Birthday Party program. It will start again in mid September 2022.

We offer an artful birthday party program (designed for children and families.) Our parties are customized and planned in collaboration with each family and are held on weekends. In the recent past, we’ve had Robot Cartooning Birthday Party. How fun is that?

This is a perk for MAG members at the Family level and above. Please see these basic details and call Rachael B. at 585-276-8956 or email Rachael B. to get your party on the books.
