Art Summer Camp

Summer Art Camps for Kids

In 2017 we'll offer two editions of Camp Chrysler, week-long sessions of art fun in painting, drawing, and sculpting at the Museum. The summer art camps wrap up with a Camp Chrysler Art Show, and the entire family is invited.

For ages 13-17, we offer a Glass Studio Camp that will run Monday-Friday, June 26-30, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

Art and Stories for Preschoolers

Tickle My Ears

Join us on the first Thursday of each month for art, fun and stories for pre-schoolers. Starting at 10:30 a.m. you and your child can enjoy storytelling time in front of a work of art. After the reading, we'll head downstairs to the Diamonstein Education Workshop for some hands-on fun!

We offer another session at 11 a.m. for groups. If you would like to bring your daycare, church group, or 8 or more toddlers, please attend the 11 a.m. session. Questions? Call Maegan Douglas, Public Programs Coordinator, at (757) 333-6221.

Focus Group: Technology in the Galleries

As we plan and design a new interactive gallery for families and children, we could use your help. We are holding focus groups on Saturday and Sunday, April 22-23, and your input is very important. Can you spare an hour or so to help us out?
