SUMMER CAMPS FOR CHILDREN
- Ages 5 to 8 and 9 to 12
- 8:30 am to 4:30 pm
- Cost: $325, supporters $300
Mastering the Masters
July 2 to 12 (9 days)
Learn about the history of art the fun way: painting, drawing and sculpting in the fashion of the great masters! Campers will travel to various countries to learn about masters such as da Vinci, Rodin, Picasso, Lichtenstein and the Group of Seven. All media will be explored while drawing inspiration from both the exhibitions and the outdoors.
Artists Throughout Art History
July 15 to 26 (10 days)
Cost: $350, supporters $325
Paint a landscape like Emily Carr or a surrealist retablo like Frida Kahlo. Make a wooden wall out of recycled materials la Louise Nevelson, and design constructivist clothes like Sonia Delaunay. Inspired by our summer exhibitions, and by working in paint, sculpture, printmaking and other media, this camp will teach participants about the work of women artists throughout art history.
Travel to the Third Dimension
July 29 to August 9 (9 days, no class August 5)
During the first week, campers will work with clay, plaster, wire, wood, paper mache and found objects to explore, build and create three-dimensional artwork. The second week will take campers to the softer side: creating two- and three-dimensional pieces, participants use soft materials such as yarn, canvas, felt and cotton to glue, sew and create.
Before and after care from 8:00 to 8:30 am and 4:30 to 5:00 pm is free.

This drop-in program for families will stimulate communication, collaboration and creativity. Let the Museum be your muse. Visit one of our many exhibitions and then drop in for an afternoon of artmaking. Our staff monitors will provide guidance and introduce you to a wide range of artmaking through painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking and more. We'll supply the ingredients. Just roll up your sleeves and add your imagination. Enjoy quality time with a child in your life as you cook up something new together in the Imagination Station.
