Camp Cummer 2018

Apr

03

Spring Break has passed and summer is quickly approaching, which means it is time to start looking at summer activities for the kids! The Cummer Museum has been teaching summer camp for nearly 20 years. In addition to developing artistic skills, learning about art and art history, and making creative projects, summer art camps help children problem solve, gain confidence, appreciate different perspectives, and communicate effectively. Art camps provide an accepting and creative environment for children to take risks, develop, explore, and share their imaginations. Students are able to interact with fellow campers who are interested in art but may have different ideas or perspectives. They may create different pieces of art based on the same instructions, which demonstrate that different does not mean wrong. This encourages children to express their thoughts, feelings, and ideas with more than just their words in their own creative way.

The Cummer Museum Education staff creates dynamic lesson plans and art projects based on the Museum’s permanent collection, gardens, and special exhibitions that will stimulate your children’s creativity and imagination. Campers, inspired by time in the galleries with artistic objects from ancient Greek pottery to contemporary paintings, the historical gardens, and the interactive area, complete an array of creative art projects of different media including drawing, painting, printmaking, and ceramics.

Give your kids the gift of a summer filled with art, learning, and imagination at Camp Cummer. The Museum offers six weeks of camp in June or July. Students entering grades 1 through 6 can sign up for one or two weeks. Middle School Camp is also available the week of July 30 for students entering grades 6 through 9. For further information or to register for Camp, please visit cummermuseum.org/camp.
