Artful Discoveries & Adventures

June 17 - 21: ages 4 - 6 June 24 - 28: ages 7 - 9 

This session features a mix of new projects that introduce campers to a variety of creative techniques—including printmaking, painting, and sculpture. Campers become Museum insiders by journeying through GRAM’s galleries and learning curatorial tips and tricks to use in their own art show. 

Past, Present, and Future

July 8 - 12: ages 4 - 6 July 15 - 19: ages 7 - 9 

This summer, travel through time in GRAM Studio—campers explore art and techniques from the past, draw inspiration from contemporary artists, and create their vision of the future during this week-long time warp. 


July 22 - 26: ages 10 - 12 

Explore the environment through the lens of art and discover how artists use natural surroundings and materials to inspire their work. Campers use traditional art processes as well as experimental methods to create environmentally friendly art. 

Art and Identity

July 23 – August 2: ages 13 - 15 

This week-long session will immerse campers in identity and self-expression through art. Campers learn how artists use different mediums as a way to express themselves, and develop a personal style while exploring portraiture, symbolism, and more.
