On the Earth and In the Sky, Ages 9–11


From the earth below us and all the way up into the sky, campers will study the texture, color, line and shape that form of the pillars of our world! Using a variety of media, they will create works of art inspired by a closer look at all the fascinating elements of what we see all around us. Join Museum educators for this last artistically adventurous camp experience!

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.
