Join us at the VBMA for Summer Art Camp! This summer, campers will explore a variety of artmaking techniques, materials, and movements. Classes are grouped by age, for children 5 through 16 years old, and all supplies are included in a wide variety of media. This year’s summer museum exhibition is Rock ‘N’ Roll Billboards of the Sunset Strip: Photographs by Robert Landau. Through exploration of the galleries and weekly themed classes, campers will have the opportunity to learn about the impact of music and storytelling on the modern world. At the end of each week, campers’ artworks are proudly displayed in the Eggert Children’s Gallery and the Patricia M. Patten Community Gallery. Every Friday, families are invited to walk the gallery and collect their children’s beautiful artworks to take home.
