Online Summer Camp: The Stories Masks Tell

August 3–7, 2020
10 am–1 pm

Online

We welcome young artists to the adventure of online art camp! Inspired by our exhibitions and collections, campers ages 8–10 and 11–13 will have fun engaging with art, while interacting with other campers, discovering artists, working with different mediums, trying out new techniques, and more. After five days of art-making, campers close out the week by sharing their creations in Friday’s online Open Studio.

This new program includes LIVE daily instruction with museum educators, teaching artists, and counselors. Families can order supplies from BLICK Art Materials, for delivery directly to you, with an easy-to-use link to a supply list.

During this week's class, The Stories Masks Tell (drawing and textile art), see how African masquerade can be used for community-building and storytelling. Draw your stories with ink on paper, and then bring them to life by building your own mask out of cardboard, yarn, and other household fiber materials.

What You’ll Need

  • Internet access
  • An internet-connected device with audio and video capabilities. A computer or laptop is highly recommended, but campers can join by phone or tablet if needed.
  • Zoom, which will be our primary platform. No account is required, and secure links and passwords will be provided.

Registration for this one-week class is $340 ($306 for Members). See more details, including the full schedule and information about scholarships.
