Summer Art Camp

Summer Art Camp RegistrationLink to Summer Art Camp Registration Form

Each week students learn some fundamentals about art (color, shape, line, texture) while using a variety of materials (fabric, paint, wood, ceramics, recycled materials and more) to create both two- and three-dimensional projects relating to the theme of the week.

In addition to making projects, students will take walking field trips to explore the many exciting places on the MU campus. On Fridays they end their week with a special walk downtown for a sweet treat at Sparky’s.

Students will take a lunch break, as well as short breaks for snacks in the morning and afternoon, however the specific itinerary of the day will depend on the day’s planned projects, weather, and the dynamic of the students enrolled in the camp.
