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.
