Art Blast Summer Art Camp

ABOUT artBLAST 

Art Blast, the Museum’s summer art camp, runs from June 8 – July 24, 2020 (skipping the week of June 29). With classes for ages 4-7, 8-11, and 12 and up, there is truly something for everyone in the wide variety of art offered throughout the summer. Ceramics, painting and drawing in all styles inspire students to energize their creativity, while learning about elements of art and art history.

All classes are taught by experienced art educators and are based on the Discipline-Based Arts Education principles of creating art, viewing art, discussing art in the context of history, while considering its aesthetics. With significant art on display throughout the Museum to reinforce lesson plans, students are able to experience a total immersion in the arts that is both enjoyable and intellectually stimulating.
