Event Description

Fierce Women with educators from the National Museum of Women in the Arts

NMWA’s collection is brimming with art by and about fierce women! During this session, discover women who refused to let men define their place, thumbed their noses at the limited roles society accorded them, and blazed trails as artists, activists, and innovators from the 16th century to today.

Registrants receive a recommended supply list, applicable digital resources, and Zoom meeting link one week prior to 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.
