Get your smocks and brushes ready—this summer, we’re painting up a storm!
In this weeklong summer camp led by the museum’s art instructors, kids ages eight through ten will learn how to look at the world with an artist’s eye through discovery and lots of messy, creative fun. We’ll explore paintings in Crystal Bridges’ collection, then head back to the studio to turn acrylics and watercolor paints into portraits, landscapes, and abstract art. Your growing artists will have a blast creating, making friends, and trying new things, and you’ll love that they’re learning about art and culture every step of the way.
Tickets are $150 ($120 for members), reserve your spot online or with Guest Services at (479) 657-2335 today.
A limited number of need-based scholarships are available for all summer camps, covering 100% of registration costs. Scholarships are awarded through a lottery system. Applications are now open—apply today!
