Brooklyn Museum welcomes young artists to the adventure of online art camp! Inspired by their exhibitions and collections, campers ages 8–10 and 11–13 will have fun engaging with art, while interacting with other campers, discovering artists, working with different mediums, trying out new techniques, and more. After five days of art-making, campers close out the week by sharing their creations in Friday’s online Open Studio.

This new program includes LIVE daily instruction with museum educators, teaching artists, and counselors. Families can order supplies from BLICK Art Materials, for delivery directly to you, with an easy-to-use link to a supply list.

During this week’s class, Your Home, Your History (drawing and mixed media), assemble the perfect still life, inspired by the art of John Edmonds and Beauford Delaney, then create unique artworks that trace your history. Collect items from around your home and learn to take photographs that explore your culture and identity. Access to a phone camera is needed for this week (no printer).

What You’ll Need

  • Internet access
  • An internet-connected device with audio and video capabilities. A computer or laptop is highly recommended, but campers can join by phone or tablet if needed.
  • Zoom, which will be our primary platform. No account is required, and secure links and passwords will be provided.
