Kids Summer Camp
This summer, campers will imagine, explore and play! Inspired by PAMA’s exhibitions and collections, campers will engage in a variety of daily activities within PAMA and at various parks and outdoor spaces within walking distance. Campers will create their own masterpieces and explore art and history in new ways.
PAMA Kids Summer Camp is designed for kids ages 6 – 12. Registration is required. Public: $240, Members: $200.
Colour, shape and form combine in a week of creating art that pops. Campers will be inspired by artists like Andy Warhol and Keith Haring as they explore a variety of artistic mediums through artwork creation and fun outdoor activities. From colourful self-portraits to three-dimensional word art to balloon painting, campers will walk away with colourful creations that pop.
Creative Discoveries, July 17 – 21
Art meets science in a week exploring the connections between painting and chemistry, sculptures and physics, printmaking and biology, and more. Campers will create crystal geodes, kinetic sculptures, fossils and watercolour wonders as they learn about science and technology in a visual way.
Adventures in Nature, July 24 – 28
Discover the connection between art, nature and the environment as we explore art and the world around us. Spend the week getting outside and creating artwork inspired by the great outdoors. We will paint “en plein air” (painting landscapes in the outdoors), explore how natural elements can be included in art, go on nature walks, and more!
Mixed Media Extravaganza, July 31 – August 4
Paint, sculpture, collage, oh my! Mix it up and experiment with a variety of media all week long. Explore the diverse collections and exhibitions at PAMA and use all kinds of materials, like oil pastels, paint and clay, to create. Campers will have the opportunity to unleash their creativity with endless possibilities.
