From George Ohr to Sam Gilliam, Benny Andrews and more, this three-day camp will be an introduction to the art practices of the masters. Each class will focus on a different artist on display in Picturing Mississippi, and will engage children and their caregivers in gallery activities, hands-on art projects, art games, and books. We will use an array of sensory media, as well as air-dry clay, washable paint, paper, pencil, crayons, glue, and other child-friendly materials. Bring your imagination and dress for mess!
*Student must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver.
