Contemporary Camp is a jam-packed summer art experience for kids ages 7 to 10 years old. 

Offered weekly, Contemporary Camp allows students to explore the many ways in which art is integrated into our daily lives. Camp sessions build upon existing academic standards. Through these standard-rich lessons campers revisit, relearn, and reassess what has been taught in the classroom through exciting hands-on art-making activities.

Contemporary Camp utilizes arts integration, an engaging approach to teaching and learning that relies on the arts to reinforce other subjects, to power our engaging lessons. Therefore, while the visual arts are the heart of this camp, lessons will also thoughtfully integrate literature, mathematics, science, and social studies to enhance understanding and explore new ideas.

The Stories of Our Lives (Art & Literature)

Stories are ephemeral unless you write them down. Let’s explore the stories behind the artwork and the importance of sharing our own stories. Create sculptures, write a graphic novel, and attend a papermaking workshop with a studio artist.
