About the Camp

Led by talented art instructors, this camp will offer a unique opportunity for campers to creatively celebrate the season and discover some of the most fantastic artworks currently on view at the McMichael. While the studio activities will be the central focus of this camp, short outdoor exploratory hikes and the gallery visits before the gallery opens to the public, will further enhance this exceptional winter break experience.
