ABOUT THE EVENT
Where Art Meets STEM, Ages 6–8
Campers will have the opportunity to explore the abundant creative and technical possibilities at the intersection of science, technology, engineering, math, and art. By experimenting with a variety of artistic media, participants will have a blast using visual and mathematical approaches to create dynamic works of art. They will study nature before drawing it, use graphs to plot a portrait, and use measurements and patterns to create sculptures.
Join us for Art Adventures!
NBMAA welcomes children to make the most of their summer with five, week-long learning experiences filled with creative hands, engaged minds, and smiling faces. Campers will explore the Museum’s galleries and outdoor sculpture garden for inspiration to create personal works of art to take home. Art making activities take place in the Museum’s beautiful and light-filled American Savings Foundations Art & Education Center, with views of Walnut Hill Park.
Each week campers will work with a variety of media, including clay, watercolor, and paint, while learning printmaking, drawing, painting, and sculpture. Families who enroll multiple children or who enroll for multiple weeks will enjoy a 10% discount. Scholarships are available for New Britain residents.
