Summer Camp Session 1: Make Your Mark (Ages 5–7)
Mon, June 5th - Fri, June 9th
Join us for summer camp at NOMA in 2023! Weeklong camp sessions offer small-group experiences devoted to a single age group at a time.
Session 1: Make Your Mark (Ages 5–7) | June 5–9
Expression and Impact
Campers will look at works that reveal evidence of human touch, explore how our bodies and movements can be used to make art, and think about the ways artists make their mark on the world. We’ll demystify some of the tools and processes used to create our favorite artworks, and express ourselves through making!
About Summer Camp at NOMA
Our summer camps are grounded in experiences with art in NOMA’s collection, special exhibitions, and the Besthoff Sculpture Garden. Campers explore the galleries and garden to engage in close looking and use conversations about artworks as a launching-off point to develop critical thinking skills, connect with others, and deepen personal identity and creativity.
We emphasize an interdisciplinary approach to creative thinking and art-making. Your young artist will explore various art-making mediums and processes including drawing, writing, movement, sculpture, painting, and more—all guided by professional teaching artists.
Summer camp sessions are based on guiding themes that vary week to week. Sign up for one OR multiple to build a meaningful summer experience!
