2021 Art Camps for Ages 6-8, 9-12, & Teens

Ready for your kids to return to the Museum? We're ready to welcome them, with art fun - and safety! - top of mind. Camps will be small - only eight students in each - with a physically-distanced workspace for each student. Masks will be required of staff and students at all times, and extra sanitation procedures will be in place

In-person Art Camps
Joslyn Members: $85 per camp; General Public: $100 per camp

Prefer to remain virtual for now? We've got you covered. Modified versions of camps will be offered via Zoom, including live camp time and suggestions for further independent art exploration between sessions. Supply kits will be available for pick-up (delivery/shipping is not available) prior to each virtual camp. Scroll to the bottom of the page for technical requirements and more details.

Virtual Art Camps
Joslyn Members: $59.50 per camp; General Public: $70 per camp

Painting for Teens

In-person, July 26-30; 1-4 pm

Experiment with painting techniques as you learn the basics, including different types of brushes and what they offer, color mixing, and various mediums that can be used to develop layered surfaces and imagery.

This class is sold out.

Virtual Camp Technical Requirements
Participants will need a computer or tablet with a webcam, microphone, and speakers. Connection is via Zoom, a web-based cloud platform. A test connection prior to each scheduled lesson is encouraged. An email with special instructions specific to each camp will be sent one week prior to each camp start date. The email will include a Zoom invitation that allows registered students to log-on and join the camp.

Workspace and Supplies
Camp supply kits are available for purchase through Joslyn and will accommodate all artmaking planned for the week. Purchased supply kits may be picked up from Joslyn the Friday and Saturday prior to each camp. (Delivery/shipping is not an option.) A material list for each camp will be provided for those who prefer to gather their own supplies. Each student must have all of the supplies listed for each camp to have a successful experience

If possible, students should choose a designated workspace that can be utilized as a “studio” for the week. Please consider each camp’s materials and plan ahead to accommodate any mess. Finding a dedicated space will allow students the flexibility and independence to “work in the studio” as inspiration occurs.

If a child’s or adult’s participation is dependent upon financial aid, please call (402) 661-3846. All requests will be held in confidence.
