Yard School of Art | 1
The Montclair Art Museum’s Yard School of Art offers an extensive summer arts program for adults, children, and teens. SUMMERART Camp for kids is perfect for keeping children cool and creative during their summer break. It’s summertime at MAM…school’s out and another season of SummerART begins! This summer, students will again have a variety of camp themes and classes to choose from, with something for all interests—from manmade or natural wonders, storytelling, innovations, or wild animals, to photography, filmmaking, and green screen. What continues to set MAM apart is access to our renowned collections of American and Native American art, and campers will be inspired by a range of Native American art, landscape paintings by George Inness, and the special exhibition Inspired by Matisse: Selected Works from the Collection on view through summer 2018. We are proud to once again offer camp sessions in partnership with our neighbor, Van Vleck House and Gardens. In addition, we continue to offer a diverse range of eight-week classes and workshops for adults. Try something new this summer or continue to build your skills in your favorite medium. Online registration will open on March 6, 2017 for Museum members, March 13, 2017, for nonmembers.
