Scholarships Are Available for the AMA’s Weeklong Prismavera Art Camp
AMA Spring Break “Staycation” Art Camp, for kids in kindergarten through 7th grade, is set for April 4-8, and this year the theme is Prismavera.
Prismavera campers will explore the galleries at the museum and experiment with different media in the classroom each day. They also will get to spend some time outdoors to do projects, engage in activities and “just soak up some much-needed sunshine Vitamin D,” Vanoteghem said.
Camp hours are 9 am-4 pm daily, but parents may drop off their campers early at 8 am and pick them up late at 5 pm at no additional cost. Parents also can opt to send their campers for half-days (9 am-noon or 1-4 pm) during the week.
“While many families will travel out of town all or part of spring break, we want to offer those who will be at home a chance to stretch their horizons in art and to bring out the creativity that already resides within them,” Vanoteghem said. “Camp also is a great place for kids to be with friends and make new friends.
“Our campers always have a good time while they create artworks and memories that they will treasure for decades to come.”
Full-day camp is $30 per day for AMA members or $40 per day for future members. Half-day camp is $20 per day for AMA members or $30 per day for future members. Full-day campers may bring a brownbag lunch from home, or the AMA will provide lunch for an additional $7 per day. Everyone gets free pizza on Friday!
“We also have scholarships available that are funded through the donations made during the Libby Womack Paddle Raise at AMA Art Ball every year,” Vanotgehem said. “Parents can email me to apply for a scholarship for their camper.”
