Summer Camps at The Mint Museum

At Mint Summer Art Camps, young artists develop artistic skills in a variety of media and engage in creative experiences in a unique environment. Professional teaching artists facilitate age-appropriate art activities in the studios and museum exhibitions.

Small class sizes, high quality art materials and instruction, and a beautiful atmosphere make Mint Museum art camps stand out from the rest.
