Summer Fun with the Museum

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

The first few weeks of Summer Art Camp at the Museum have flown by! We’ve enjoyed seeing both new and familiar faces in our June and early July camp sessions, where campers in kindergarten through 8thgrades have enjoyed Exploring Puppetry and Mask Making, Cartooning Is Cool, Let’s Draw + Paint and many more exciting activities!

Each summer, the Asheville Art Museum offers eight weeks of Summer Art Camp fun to rising kindergarten through 12thgrade students. Classes are held in the studio of the Museum’s WNC Art Resource Center. A few spaces are still open for registration including: Digital Photography + Mixed Media (for 9th -12thgrade students the mornings of July 25 – 29) and 3-D Adventure (for 3rd- 5th grade students the mornings of August 1 – 5).

Summertime fun with the Museum continued this past weekend during the Family Art pARTy!, held in conjunction with The Big Crafty on Sunday, July 10th. Thank you to everyone who participated in our fun afternoon activities!
