SUMMER ART CAMPS

Laumeier offers one-week sessions of Summer Art Camp in half-day sessions for ages 4 to 6 and full-day sessions for ages 6 to 15. Campers learn about artists throughout history, explore Laumeier’s woodland trails and find inspiration in the artworks on view for drawing, painting, sculpting and more. Each session of Art Camp features a different theme, so register for more than one to receive the broadest experience!

Art Camps are taught by local, experienced Artist-Instructors and are structured to encourage artistic development and self-expression through social and individual skill-building experiences. All materials are provided, and each camper receives an Art Camp t-shirt.

2016 Summer Art Camps have ended, and registration is closed. See you next summer!
