Inspired by the Art, Books, and Creativity (ABC) Institutes and NMWA’s collection, sessions are hands-on, participatory, and fun. Sessions will explore the museum’s collection and resources; introduce historic and contemporary women artists; and engage participants in experimental making and close looking.
NMWA’s free, virtual Educator Summer Camps will be offered in July 2022. Registration opens Wednesday, June 1, 2022.
2022 Summer Camp Information
Independent, 90-minute sessions on a variety of topics are offered Tuesdays and Thursdays, Tuesday, July 5, 2022, through Thursday, July 28, 2022.
Guest instructors include Robin Ha, author and illustrator of Cook Korean!: A Comic Book with Recipes, which was featured in NMWA’s special exhibition DMV Color; Kim Van Someren, printmaker and instructional technician at the University of Washington who loves to play with her food; and Kris Grey, Visual Thinking Strategies facilitator who will introduce us to a menu of diverse images to jumpstart rich classroom conversations.
Register for one session or many depending on your interest and commitments.
Registrants receive a recommended supply list, applicable digital resources, and Zoom meeting link in advance of each session. Camp activities are largely designed to make use of materials and tools you might have at home, to encourage repurposing and seeing everyday objects in a new light.
Session participants can request a professional development certificate of completion reflecting total earned participation hours.
