Awesome Animals, Ages 6–8


This week, campers will explore the galleries looking for animals in the Museum’s permanent collection. They will take their inspiration into the Art Studios where they will learn to use line, color, and texture to create their own paintings and sculptures of animals. On the final day of camp, participants will use everything they have learned about animals and the elements of art to design a species of their own!

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.
