TAKE HOME ART KITS

Each Monday from 9am – 5pm and Tuesday morning from 9am – noon, curated art kits will be available for pick up outside the Centennial Complex (lower level). These kits will include art-making materials for each week’s themed activity. We anticipate participants will have basic supplies such as scissors, basic glue, paints and markers already at home. If you need any of these, please let us know by emailing museumed@uwyo.edu and we’ll do our best to support you. Kits will contain enough materials for 2 – 3 participants or family members. Miss a week? No worries! Recorded versions of the activities will be available the following week and you can pick up your kit the Monday after you missed an activity.

For questions and concerns about 2020 Summer Art Camp please contact Katie.Christensen@uwyo.edu. Thanks for your understanding and support as we navigate the health and safety of our staff, patrons and community while providing fun and exciting arts-based programming.
