Kids Art Camp

Kids Summer Art Camp

Join SJMA for a week of fun, creativity, and artistic growth this summer. Whether in-person or live-virtual, campers get behind-the-scenes access to exhibitions, experiment with the artistic process, and show off their own work in a student exhibition. SJMA’s teaching artists offer in-depth art experiences inspired by current exhibitions. Kids learn how to look at, talk about, and create art. Each student receives a kit of art supplies to practice new techniques at home.

WHO

For children ages 6–14 (camps are divided into age groups 6–8, 9–11, and 12–14).

Please note, each camper will receive individual artistic support, encouragement, and creative challenges unique to their learning style and skill level. 

WHAT

Join SJMA for a summer art camp that pairs creative exploration of art materials and processes led by our experienced gallery teachers and studio art educators with enhanced creative growth opportunities, made possible by our online format.

To further enhance our online platform and address the need for minimizing summer learning losses, we are incorporating science curriculum into our program! Greg Brown, a Stanford-trained design thinker, and STEM consultant will engage campers in interpretive art + science lessons each week. 

Our Summer Art Camps culminate with an exhibition of campers' artwork.

Each week-long camp is offered Mon–Fri for ages 6–8, 9–11, and 12–14, (no camp the week of July 4 due to Independence Day).
