While summer seems ages away, two New Orleans museums have opened registration for their art-focused summer camp sessions. Ogden Museum of Southern Art and the New Orleans Museum of Art are offering day camp during June and July a.k.a. the perfect way for kids to escape the heat, while learning something new.
The New Orleans Museum of Art opened registration for their six weeklong, full-day sessions. (Non-members can register on Friday, February 7 at 6 p.m.) Kids ages five through 10 are eligible to participate in the themed sessions where they will explore the museum's galleries, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, and their own ideas and creative responses. A new program for campers ages 11 through 13 was also added this year. The cost of camp is $300 for members and $400 for non-members.
Children in grades two through 12 can explore a variety of topics including painting, mixed media, fashion design, and more. Each session is two weeks in duration and ends with a final show or gallery exhibition showcasing campers' artwork. For those participating in the photography camp, their work will appear in a student-curated Museum exhibition opening on Hancock Whitney White Linen Night. The cost of camp is $450 for members and $500 for non-members.
