Looking for a way to keep your college student busy this summer? Do you have a budding artist in the family? If so, don’t miss the summer art camps at the High Museum of Art.

Registration is open for students in grades 5-8, with camps available starting June 6. Each week, young artists can explore the galleries of the Museum and create original works of art while honing their drawing, painting and design skills. They will also learn about the Museum’s famous collection, with artworks ranging from photography and folk art to impressionist paintings and contemporary sculpture, and explore the Museum’s special exhibitions. The camps are led by professional teacher artists, who will inspire your children to look closely, experiment with materials and try new techniques.

With a variety of themes to choose from, you can find what suits your children’s interests. They can experiment with abstract art and sculpture in the studio or travel back in time to discover artistic traditions from old Europe to the present day. There’s even a “HogwARTs” camp this year for your Harry Potter-obsessed wizard.

In addition to the obvious educational benefits, high school summer art camps are a great way to get your kids out of the house into a safe environment that fosters creativity, discovery, inclusion, and self-expression.

Camps are $350/week for High Museum of Art members and $450/week for non-members. Seats are filling up fast, so register now! For more information and to register, visit www.high.org/camp.
