Crocker art camps are art-filled adventures that take kids into the Museum’s galleries, studios, and out into the world! Campers develop friendships and creative-thinking skills through looking at, talking about, and making art. The Crocker’s setting, renowned art collection, special exhibitions, and professional art educators make for a unique and high quality camp experience. Rooted in art, camps feature an array of exciting themes and activities to meet your child’s creative interests. Space is limited and camps fill quickly, so advance registration is recommended.

• Low campers-to-educator ratio (never more than 9-to-1, and frequently lower)
• Taught by permanent Crocker staff with extensive training in art education, with guest visits from professional artists from a variety of art disciplines
• All supplies included
• Each participant receives two snacks per day. Box lunches are available for purchase from the Crocker Cafe by Supper Club

Fee per camp: $250 members • $295 nonmembers
Instructors: Museum education staff

Taking inspiration from the Swidler Collection, Meissen ceramics, and sculptures in the permanent collection, campers will explore clay in its varied forms. They'll try out classic techniques, using pinching, coils, and slabs as well as more unusual uses for clay, like printmaking with a clay printing plate. If you enjoy squishing, squeezing and building, join us for a week full of clay-building fun.
