    Summer Art Camp

    Lux’s popular Summer Art Camp allows kids to explore, make, and exhibit art in a museum setting. Each of the six unique weeks of camp will focus on different contemporary artists. Campers will create a variety of projects in response to those artists' practices using media of their choosing, including drawing, painting, sculpture, mixed media, printmaking, collage, and photography. The summer camp season culminates with a professionally-hung art show in the Artist Pavilion and Education Pavilion, where students invited family, friends, and teachers to view work created during the camp.

    We will also have a summer studio for teens in grades 7-10.

Kids-in-Residence

  • Kids-in-Residence is Lux’s in-depth, after-school art program for young artists ages 5-12. Each session corresponds to the Lux Residency schedule and is based on the ideas, style, and technique of the current artist-in-residence.

    The curriculum allows kids to get up-close and personal with the work of professional artists by studying their work, experimenting with similar techniques and materials, and following the artists’ progress in the studio from start to finish.
