The Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft’s Education Department provides the solution to summer boredom by offering summer camps for elementary and middle school age children. Each week-long camp is carefully designed to create a fun and educational art experience for kids and teenagers, with the focus on hands-on art projects taught by professional artists.
Campers in the KidArt Camp, which takes place at the Museum at 715 West Main Street, will explore all sorts of media and techniques, including fiber art projects, painting, photography, and sculpture. The week also includes lunch at the Belvedere, and a chance to meet the Museum’s artist-in-residence. KidArt Camp is held from 10:00am – 3:00pm each day, and is $144 for Museum members and $169 for non-members.
