The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum
Camp Aldrich 2019
Grades 1 through 10
Spend a week in the Museum’s on-site art studio and outside in our Sculpture Garden working with practicing artists and educators to learn new art-making techniques at Camp Aldrich! At these full-day, week-long day camps, campers will learn about the work on view in the galleries, explore the Museum’s two-acre campus, and incorporate the world around them into their art – just like the contemporary artists that exhibit at The Aldrich. Each week culminates in a celebration for family and friends on Friday evening from 5 to 6 pm. Caregivers receive personalized daily emails from Camp staff with updates on that the group did during the day, what their child accomplished and learned, and what is planned for the following day.
