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.
