Join us at Camp Aldrich for a full-day, week-long arts experience with Museum educators and practicing artists. Weeks are themed and tailored to specific age groups for the ultimate creative learning environment. On Wednesdays campers will walk into town for a local field trip. Family and friends are invited to a culminating art show on Friday evenings. Caregivers receive personalized daily emails from the Camp Aldrich team sharing what their child learned and did that day.
The possibilities are endless in this imaginative and experimental week of Camp Aldrich. Your young creators will design collectible toys, experiment with ready-mades, build airplanes, and more! Inspired by the works of exhibiting artists Frank Stella and Genesis Belanger, as well as Aldrich alumni artists like KAWS and Yayoi Kusama, your young creators can let their imaginations run wild and channel their unique perspectives into works of arts. Led by Aldrich teaching artists Noah Fox and Lorena Sferlazza.
