Program Summary

The Tween Art Camp geared to young people ages 9-12 years old will visit the museum galleries to explore the world of the re-mixed such as Chinese tomb guardian figures, African masks, mythological beasts, surrealist paintings, and contemporary collages. In the studios, each participant will create a portfolio of drawings, digital photos, and prints that they will use as source material for a final project created with a 3D printer. The objectives for this program are to encourage a playful exploration of Art Institute collection objects through “looking” exercises and studio experiences, with a special focus on developing 21st century technology-based skills.
