With summer quickly approaching, the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts is offering summer camp sessions for children ages six to 13. There is a camp schedule designed for everyone with week-long, half-day, and full-day options. Camp consists of small group lessons in drawing, painting, ceramics, and sculpture.
Students will learn to work with different forms of media including, clay modeling, mixed media sculpture, acrylic painting, watercolors, colored pencils, pastels, charcoal, pen and ink, printmaking, and others. Inspiration for the art projects and techniques taught will come from works of art featured in the Museum’s collection.
Summer camp takes place during five weeks throughout the summer. The dates for camp are: June 8 through 12; June 22 through 26; July 13 through 17; July 20 through 24; and August 3 through 7; 8:30 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4:30 p.m. Full-day campers can enjoy lunch prepared by Café M for an added $40. Camp is designed with working parents in mind so extended hours are available with an early drop off at 7:45 a.m. and late pick up at 5:30 p.m. for an additional $50.
The cost of the half-day camp is $100 for members and $160 for non-members. Full-day camp is $190 for members and $250 for non-members. The fee includes snacks and all materials needed for art projects. Sessions are quickly filling up so register today by calling 334.240.4365. Each camp features different themes, art activities, and techniques, so be sure to sign up for more than one session!
