We will have weekly themes inspired by the exhibition, Through the Memory Atlas: Forty Years of Collecting, which features over 200 art works drawn solely from our permanent collection made by local, national and international artists.
Each day, we will go into the gallery for an interactive tour and activity. Then it’s back to the studios for art making and experimenting!
Participants will learn about the essentials of art making and will be encouraged to apply their knowledge to traditional art materials, like painting, drawing and sculpting. They will also be encouraged to experiment with non-traditional materials in new and exciting ways!
Each week, the older campers (aged 7+) will get to go on a variety of mini adventures to the Kamloops Library, the Kamloops Museum and Archives and Riverside Park.
At the end of the summer, we celebrate all the talented young artists who participated in our summer art camps with an exhibition on our Open Gallery. We will hold an opening reception for this exhibition on Saturday, August 25 at 12:00pm.
