Summer Art Camp

  • Lux 2014 Summer Art Camp was bigger and better than ever! Lux officially broke in the new Education Pavilion, where there was even more space to expand. We added an additional week, another age group, and another three hours of instruction to each week!
     

    Lux’s popular six-week Summer Art Camp allowed kids to explore, make, and exhibit art in a museum setting. Each week of camp was based on a different theme or discipline, including drawing, book arts, mixed media, sculpture, printmaking, and painting. Classes met four days a week (for a total of 12 instruction hours per week) and featured creative projects, nature walks and studio tours. The camp culminated 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.


    Stay tuned for information about Lux 2015 Summer Art Camp.
