Summer Creativity Camps

Play and experiment in these fun, art-filled camps bursting with engaging gallery games and hands-on activities. Camps take place on-site at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Campers spend their mornings exploring art in the galleries with the CMA’s gallery teachers and afternoons flexing their creativity muscles making art in our classrooms.

For questions or more information, email FamilyYouthInfo [at] clevelandart.org or call 216-707-2671.

  • Ages 5–7: Unlock your imagination in the galleries, then investigate materials in the studio in this playful, exploratory camp. 
  • Ages 8–10: Take a trip down the rabbit hole and discover new ways to make ideas and interests come to life with open-ended projects. 
  • Ages 11–13: Play games in the galleries and try out new materials, ideas, and processes with lively studio challenges.
