C.A.M.P. (Contemporary Art, Media & Process) invites 5–15 year-olds to explore contemporary art through a series of week-long art-making workshops led by local contemporary artists. C.A.M.P.ers discover out-of-the-ordinary materials and learn about artists’ processes as they discuss artwork in the Museum’s galleries. This week-long camp culminates with a showcase and celebration of the camper’s artwork.

Boot C.A.M.P.ers will learn about conceptual art and take inspiration from artworks on view to create their own idea-driven works of art. They’ll explore installation, performance art, or develop a piece for the public to participate in. C.A.M.P.ers present their artworks at the end of the week.
