An annual series of free art camps are designed to present broad learning experiences in the visual arts to children ages 6 to 15, provide outreach to economically disadvantaged youths, and serve as a bridge for generating partnerships with community social service agencies. During each session, one-half of the seats are reserved for children recommended by social service agencies, and the remaining seats are offered to the general public.
Camps are scheduled during spring and fall school breaks in the children’s art studio, ArtLand, and in the summer under canopies in Ryan Sculpture Park. Sessions include guided tours of the current exhibitions by the museum’s education staff and art instruction led by local and regional professional artists.
At the conclusion of the camps, exhibitions of the works of art produced are featured in the museum’s Young at Art Gallery.
