This July, AVAM hosts another truly visionary experience for students, with three one-week Summer Studio sessions of hands-on arts programs at the national museum for intuitive, self-taught artistry! Students will learn about visionary art as they explore new & unusual materials, create their own unique & original art projects, and experience a special week-long, Visiting Artist workshop. Each session of Summer Camp is designated for a specific age group, and follows the same format. In the mornings, AVAM's Education Team will lead students through a variety of creative activities inspired by our very own visionary artists and one-of-a-kind exhibitions. Then in the afternoons, our Visiting Artists will light up those creative minds with some original approaches to art-making and more! Check out our 2014 schedule, and don't wait—SIGN UP TODAY!
