Art Camps at the Broad Art Museum (June - August 2019)

Summer icon Scholarship icon

These camps are available to students ages 6 through high school.

This is not your average art camp! Learn to see differently, rethink the familiar, and explore the endless possibilities of art-making every day at the MSU Broad Summer Art Camp! Camp meets for weekly sessions from 9am–3pm daily.

Join us for a creative summer at the MSU Broad, where artist Oscar Tuazon’s Water School will inspire artistic inventions and strengthen campers’ relationship with the environment. Campers aged 6–11 will have the opportunity to be part of two different camps related to the Water School—sign up for one or two! Middle and High School camps are designed to include aspects of both at a more advanced level.


Inventing Our World: Campers will explore ideas of sustainability in art, architecture, and invention. Activities will include design challenges, a community art project, solar-powered art experiments, and an art exhibition created by the campers.
Ages 6–8: June 24–28 and Aug. 5–9
Ages 9–11: July 8–12 and Aug. 12–16

Follow The Water: Campers will explore water in our community, where it comes from and where it goes! Activities will include field trips to the Grand, Looking Glass, and Red Cedar Rivers; documenting observations about each using our artistic and creative tools, and using these experiences to create a one-of-a-kind art exhibition at the end of the week.
Ages 6–8: July 15–19
Ages 9–11: July 29–Aug. 2

Eco-Studio: Campers will discover ways contemporary art addresses important issues in our society. Explore water in our community through an artistic lens and learn about sustainability in architecture while experimenting with renewable resources in your own artmaking. Celebrate your discoveries in an end-of-camp art show.
Middle School: July 22–26
High School: June 17–21

Cost: $250 per week. Early bird discount of $50 for registration by March 15, 2019. Need-based scholarships are available.
