“Behind the Scenes at the Museum”

Spend a week at the YAM using the art in the museum to influence what you create.  This summer go behind the scenes (to places in the museum you’ve never seen), create art, and put it all together to make a video.


The YAM is committed to a safe and healthy environment for creating art.  YAM Camp will be smaller this year and outdoors whenever possible.  Masks must be worn. When children arrive, temperatures will be taken and everyone will wash hands.  Detailed information on safety will be provided in advance.  

We are communicating with families to offer the best art experience possible for your child during these unpredictable times.  As a result, YAM Camp may shift to an online platform based on enrollment.  The decision will be made two weeks from the start of YAM Camp.  


Registration is not complete and positions are not held until full payment is received.

Enrollment is limited. Contact the Education Program Coordinator, Jennifer Parry, for questions at artsuitcase@artmuseum.org or at 406.256.6804 x232.
