Summer Camp Session 3: Think Beyond (Ages 5–7)
Mon, June 27th - Fri, July 1st
This year, we’re excited to launch a reimagined Summer Camp at NOMA! Weeklong camp sessions offer small-group experiences devoted to a single age group at a time.
Session 3: Think Beyond (Ages 5–7) | June 27–July 1
Artists have a way of opening up doors to different worlds and possibilities. Take inspiration from art works as varied as glimmering Fairyland Lusterware bowls and vases and the larger-than-life snail of Hank Willis Thomas’ History of the Conquest in the Sculpture Garden to imagine mind-expanding creations of your own.
Our Big Idea of the Summer…Ways of Knowing
This summer—after a year requiring incredible flexibility, strength, and resilience—we are slowing down to consider the various ways in which we take in and understand our world—to not only survive and adapt, but to thrive!
Our big idea of the summer, Ways of Knowing, celebrates what and how we come to know what we know. Weekly sub-themes help campers dig deeper into some of the ways we build our personal truths through observation and the five senses; emotion; memory; reason; and imagination.
