Photo 2Campers will experiment with different art media in the studio, explore the Gardens and Galleries, and spend time in Art Connections. The 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.



Photo 3PROJECT HIGHLIGHT: “Bronze” Ceramic Self-Portrait

In Mr. Matthew’s class, campers looked at examples of bronze portraiture in the Sculpture Garden. They discussed how artists use depth and texture to render images in three dimensions before returning to the studio to create low-relief self-portraits using clay. These portraits were then painted and with shoe polish to create a patina.

Quotes from Campers:

“The camp is the most spectacular camp in the world. The activities are so interesting. We use clay, water color, ink (for printing), and a lot more materials. The Gardens are so beautiful. I have been coming here for four summers back-to-back and will come back every year in the future. It is the best thing in the world. We hope you have the best time at Camp Cummer.” –Erica

“Camp Cummer is really fun. This is my first summer. It is cool, and I learned more things about art. The teachers and volunteers are amazing, and they help me when I need it. This camp is the best camp. I’ve never been to a better camp.” –Layla
