Exploring the Museum (morning session), taught by Jolena Ryan, offers campers an opportunity to go behind the scenes at MAM! Ever wondered how art gets installed in a gallery? Or wanted a glimpse inside the secret vault where MAM's art collection is stored? Participants get to play curator for a day and hang an exhibition of art created by all the campers in the education gallery. There will be an opening celebration for the show on Friday, March 20, and parents are invited.
Nikki Rossignol leads To the Museum, and Beyond! (afternoon session) which includes daily field trips to other art spaces in Missoula. How is a museum different from a community arts center, a gallery, a mural in an alley? Explore how our arts community works together to nurture and support artists.
Camps are geared to ages 9-12; full-day campers should bring a bag lunch.
