Summer Studios


Summer Studios (formerly ‘Kids Creations!’) is a unique summer program for children and teens. We will kick off our Summer Studios at the new museum facility beginning the 3rd week in June. Each day’s studio will take place between 9:00am and 12:00pm, and each week long session begins on Monday focusing on a specific theme and ends each Friday with an exhibit of student work along with a reception for families and friends. The cost per weekly session will be $125 for students ($100 for museum members). See the schedule below to learn about each week’s session. If you would like to sign up your child for the 2014 Summer Studios, you can do so by downloading, filling out, and mailing in the PDF application that can be found below the schedule. Space per session is limited to 15 students per age group, so sign up today!
