For Children Entering Grades 1–5:

Foodies Club Camp
July 11th-15th, 2022, 9 a.m.–noon
Food can be so inspiring we have to make art about it! This summer, we will create appetizing art inspired by food and the moments we share with others when we eat. Campers will get to plant herbs, create plate settings, and have fun with food art!

Fantastic Storytellers Camp
July 18th-22nd, 2022, 9 a.m.–noon
Do you like to tell stories? Maybe you create characters too? This week’s camp is all about telling fantastic stories through cool art. Join us in the exchange of amazing tales and a lot of art-making! We will draw inspiration from William Eggleston’s photographs and take our own pictures, learn about famous authors, create characters, and build settings for them to go on their adventures.

Live in the Landscape: Sustainability and Nature
July 25th-29th, 2022, 9 a.m.–noon
Artists have inspired and touched by nature since the beginning of time! During Live in the Landscape, we will draw inspiration from Georgia O’Keeffe, The Kunan Indian Tribe, and many more. Just like these artists and makers mentioned, we will celebrate nature and animals through art-making. We will also learn how to take care of our gorgeous landscapes and make art that inspires others to lead a sustainable lifestyle.
