The University of Wyoming Art Museum will offer two Summer Art Camp sessions this month for students ages 6-15.

The Summer Art Camp, “Art and Identity,” will take place in two one-week sessions. The first session, for students ages 6-10, will take place Monday through Friday, June 6-10; and the second session, for students ages 11-15, will meet Monday through Friday, June 13-17. The camp will take place from 1-4:45 p.m. daily.

Participation is limited to 30 students per session. The cost is $60 per student for each weekly session.

Students will use current museum exhibitions as inspiration by exploring how artists from around the world use process to explore their understanding of identity and belonging. Students will use different kinds of materials and discover ways to make art in the studio, including painting, sculpture and printmaking.
