Family Camp (Ages 4-10 with at least one adult enrollee per family)
Family Camp is a full participation experience allowing family members of different generations to bond, create, and have a blast. Combining visits to the renowned Art Institute of Chicago museum with exciting studio-based explorations, camp instructors guide all participants through each step of the creative process, using materials such as paint, collage, mixed media, pastels, or charcoal. Regardless of age, this camp builds curiosity and self-confidence for all participants through creative problem solving, firsthand exposure to the unmatched collections at the museum, and material investigation.
