The Modern is excited to offer this special camp to preschoolers. Camp begins with an orientation on the first day, including a tour of the collection, museum facilities, and grounds. The rest of the week focuses on gallery projects with an artist who leads campers to respond to works on view. This camp prepares young children for future camps at the Modern. Space is limited to 15.
A snack is provided each day.
Online registration for 2018 Art Camp begins on Friday, March 23 at 10 am.
The Modern's unique programs for young artists emphasize learning through direct observation of art and thoughtful activities inspired by the permanent collection and current exhibition. This introduces students to some of the complex and challenging concepts and practices behind modern and contemporary art. Distinguished area artists design and lead art activities based on the special exhibition TAKASHI MURAKAMI: THE OCTOPUS EATS ITS OWN LEG and the permancent collection. Activities encompass everything from art making in the traditional sense to interdisciplinary exploration.  
Grouped by age and accompanied by their counselors, art campers spend time in the galleries and on the grounds exploring the art and architecture, followed by time in the museum studio where they work with two artists each session. Instructors provide enriching opportunities to process, apply, and respond to ideas formed in relation to the art on view. The last day of camp ends with a reception and display of the campers' artwork to celebrate their creative accomplishments with family and friends. Campers make exciting discoveries concerning art, the world, and themselves through Art Camp at the Modern.
