YAM Camp

Camp that sparks creativity

Growing artists spend a week at the YAM using the artwork in the museum to influence their own creations. YAM camp develops artistic skills though Visual Thinking Strategies. Every year this camp has a theme. Previous camps have explored themes such as “Art and Science” and “Student Artists Working with Professional Artists.”

Every year, there are two session for YAM Camp for children ages 6-8 (9:30am-12:00pm) and 9-12(1:00pm-3:30pm).

“Art All Around You”

Have you noticed that art surrounds you every day, everywhere you go?  Explore and create art that transports you to other places, conjures imagined societies, and that makes you look twice at places you already know.  Spend a week with YAM Art educators and local artists while you learn about art and make new friends!
