Young Artists at Work

 

June 2 – August 15, 2014

Full-day and half-day weeklong workshops

Ages 5-8, 9-12, and 13-18

Young Artists at Work (YAW) is BMoCA’s signature series of immersive hands-on art-making workshops for youth. Celebrating our 10th Anniversary, this year YAW will be expanding to include workshops for teens (age 13-18.)

Each summer, BMoCA is overflowing with creativity as local artists bring their talents and enthusiasm to each week of camp. Young artists explore personal expression, creativity, and material exploration in fun workshops geared towards each age group. With a different theme each week, workshops explore multiple mediums and concepts including collage, painting, sculpture, photography, fiber art, jewelry, and digital art & design.

BMoCA’s exhibitions inspire new ideas. At the end of each week, youth will hold their own exhibition opening where family and friends can celebrate their work!

Membership Special: Receive a free Creative Family Membership with the purchase of two non-member camps.

BMoCA provides a healthy snack during each workshop.
Join the Lunch Bunch: Pack a lunch and stay for a fun-filled break from 12-1pm for $5 per day. Payable during the week of camp.

Ways to Purchase:
You can register your young artist online, by calling 303.443.2122, or visiting us in person. To download a YAW Registration Form, please click here.
