Summer Camp at the Boca Raton Museum Art School is so much fun kids don’t know they’re learning! Using the Art School’s professional art studios, children explore art techniques and artistic concepts. Art projects are geared to age groups: 5 to 7, 8 to 10, 11 to 12. Different theme weeks and a wide variety of creative art projects stimulate children’s imaginations. A balance is sought between preserving children’s natural creativity and learning new skills to better express themselves. At the end of the summer all children and their families are invited to a special reception for the “Art Camp Exhibit” in the Boca Raton Museum of Art in Mizner Park to celebrate each child’s first museum showing!

The memories children create at Summer Camp may be cherished forever, while the artistic and interpersonal skills they learn will be useful for a lifetime.
