Joslyn Members: $42.50 per week; Supply Kit: $15.30 per week
No camp or supply kit refunds.
Campers will meet daily - via Zoom - from the comfort of home, to explore themes inspired by works from Joslyn’s galleries. Museum studio staff will guide students through art-making challenges and projects ideas related to the weekly camp themes. These 75-minute studio classes will provide students with techniques, tools, and vocabulary that can be utilized for continued, independent learning all summer long. Students are encouraged to work independently while in camp, but adults are asked to remain available to provide art-making or technological assistance.


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 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.
