Summer Art Camps

Calling all junior fashionistas, sculptors, painters, designers, and inventors! Summer Art Camps at the Dallas Museum of Art have something for every creative kid. Spark your imagination with mixed media, fashion, drawing, painting, design, and more in camps for children ages 4-12. Campers can spend a week in the Museum exploring galleries, making new friends, working in the studio, and creating amazing art. Each week culminates in an art exhibition or performance for friends and family.

In 2018, camps will be held each week, June 4-29 and July 9-August 3. Morning camps are from 9:00 a.m. to noon, and afternoon camps are from 1:00-4:00 p.m.

Tickets go on sale to the public March 2 at 10:00 a.m. DMA Members may purchase tickets early on March 1 at 10:00 a.m. Register early–camps fill quickly!

Unless otherwise indicated, the cost for camps is as follows:
