TAM Kids Create Camp: Sculpt!

Tacoma Art Museum

Program Overview

Innovate, collaborate, and fabricate at TAM’s Kids Create Camp this summer! Campers will think big and look close during week-long investigations into how artists create. Teaching artists will introduce campers to exciting art materials and techniques, and lead inspiration-gathering expeditions into TAM’s galleries and around town. Campers will pull it all together for an art show at the end of each week, sharing their growing artistic skills with families and friends.

A giant cardboard dog, a larger-than-life bronze bearcub, and a cast of western characters will ignite imaginations in this camp about 3D art. Experimenting with clay, cardboard, wire, and more, campers will consider how artists plan and make sculptures as they create their own individual works of art. Then they’ll collaborate to make a team-sized sculpture!
