Summer Art Camp: Beyond Canvas

This event has already passed

Ages: 9–12
Teacher: Melissa Brito

When is a canvas not just a canvas? When an artist transforms it into images of faraway lands, dashing heroes, larger-than-life animals, and splashes of pure color! Go beyond the canvas in this camp focused on the joys of paint. Sketch from works of art in the Museum’s galleries, and then take on the challenge of new ideas and materials to create your own inspired canvas. Experiment with watercolor and tempera, transform 3-D objects to 2-D pictures, mix a personalized color palette, and more on your path to painting perfection.

Beyond Canvas is SOLD OUT. To be placed on the waiting list, please email
