Beyond techniques and mediums, we will also help campers develop the habits of perseverance, confidence in expression, good craftsmanship, and critical thinking.

Do you know who Pablo Picasso, Georgia O'Keefe, Jacob Lawrence, and Diego Rivera are? Why they are famous for their unique approaches to colors and shapes in their artwork? Discover more about these artists and how they created colorful images that populate our museums around the world.

We will also help you strengthen your skills in:
