Adventure and creativity await at Crystal Bridges!
Come explore the art of a good story through tabletop games in this weeklong summer camp led by museum educators and presented in collaboration with Trike Theatre. Perfect for tweens ages 11 through 13 who love creative writing, board games, or theater, you’ll spend the week designing a one-shot adventure for the world’s most popular roleplaying game and honing your storytelling skills.
We’ll spend time in the galleries drawing inspiration from the people, places, and artworks in the collection, then head back to the studios to build confidence in your creative abilities, practice public speaking skills, and make artwork to enhance your games at home. Throw in some funny-shaped dice and the chance to make friends with other creative tweens, and you have a perfect recipe for a summer of adventure.
Tickets are $150 ($120 for members), reserve your spot online or with Guest Services at (479) 657-2335 today.
