Spend the summer with Children’s Museum of the Arts at the museum on 103 Charlton Street! CMA’s week-long summer camps run from June through September at the museum in SoHo. Your child can dive into photography, explore the arts of ancient times, learn how to animate their own film, illustrate their own story, and so much more!

These technique-based classes are led by CMA’s team of Teaching Artists who design each camp’s curriculum off their own artistic practices. Campers have the unique opportunity to learn comic book design from illustrators, animation from filmmakers, screen printing from textile artists, and more. Sign up your young creator for as many weeks as you wish. Classes are from 10 AM-4 PM, with supervised play from 9-10 AM and 4-5 PM included.CMA’s Summer Art Colony offers over 50 camps at two locations, at CMA and on historic Governors Island.

CMA offers a limited number of scholarships for Summer Art Colony. Apply for one here. Deadline to apply is by end of day Friday, May 19, 2017.
