at the Worcester Art Museum
Week 8, August 12 - August 16
The JCC is excited to partner with the Worcester Art Museum in this program designed especially for our campers. This specialty combines looking at authentic art objects from over 50 centuries of art in the Museum galleries with art-making experiences in the Museum studios. Create art and learn to think and respond creatively. Campers will have the opportunity to try new materials and gain self confidence. All youth, not just those with perceived talents, benefit from working with art materials and learning about self-expression. Media may include drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, computer art, mixed media, printmaking or fashion.
