OKCMOA Summer Art Camps 2017
OKCMOA Summer Art Campers are encouraged to think like artists! Daily gallery visits filled with games and conversation, art making, and more will bring out creativity in all ages. Two thematic sessions are available. All campers participate in a Friday afternoon art show.
In addition to art-making and exploring the galleries, campers will have the opportunity to participate in a staff-guided tour, get the wiggles out in a fun yoga or karate session, and make a trip to the Myriad Botanical Gardens and Crystal Bridge!
The Museum provides instruction, extracurricular activities, and art materials. You provide a non-perishable sack lunch, drink, and two snacks each day.
Students must meet the minimum age requirements for each camp to participate.
