Adventure into an inspiring world full of sculptures, natural wonders, and imaginative art projects with Laumeier Sculpture Park’s Summer Art Camps and Teen Art Programs. Half-day Little Buds Morning Art Camps are designed for ages 3.5-6. Young artists investigate art making through fun hands-on activities, explore the woodland creek and trails, and learn and socialize through play.
Full-day Art Camps are designed for elementary grades K-5 and middle school grades 6-8. Young artists learn about contemporary and historical artists, interact with special guests, explore the woodland creek and trails, and create unique works of art.
Teen Art Programs are geared for 9-12th grade artists. Foundations of Art is a morning half-day program designed for teen artists who are passionate about art making and are excited to learn the foundations of a variety of media. Guided Studio Art is an afternoon half-day program designed for teen artists who are already strongly grounded in their art-making practices, allowing them to develop a small body of work with the guidance of a mentor.
Little Buds and Elementary/Middle School Art Camps run in weekly sessions. The Teen Art Programs run in two week sessions.
