Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts to Hold Summer Art Camps | Arts & Culture
Montgomery, AL—Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts will offer Summer Art Camps for children ages 6 to 13 throughout the summer. The fun-filled camps are week-long and offered for full-days or half-days. Participating children will be given small group lessons in drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture and print-making. Each camp offers different themes, art activities, and techniques, so students are encouraged to sign up for more than one week! Famous works of art in the Museum’s permanent collection will inspire projects, and students will explore many different media, such as clay modeling, mixed media sculpture, acrylic painting, watercolors, colored pencils, pastels, charcoal, pen & ink, print-making, etc. Camp fees include snacks and all materials used in the art making. The camps are designed for working parents in mind, as extended hours are offered. Camps are limited to 20 students and fill up quickly.
