Awesomely Abstract Art Camp coincides with the temporary exhibit Looking Sideways: Beverly Todd Abstract Paintings this year. Students will explore the gallery experiencing this exhibit as well as works by abstract artists in our permanent collection. Join the fun as we explore work by famous abstract artists such as Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, & Wassily Kandinsky. Children will draw, paint, make collages, eat snacks and play games throughout the day.  All supplies are included, and kids will come home with finished works of art and their very own camp t-shirt.
