Event Description

About the Educator Camp

NMWA’s virtual Educator Summer Camp is designed for all educators: teachers, home school instructors, scout leaders, etc. We just ask that you come with your learners in mind and a playful spirit!

The standalone sessions, inspired by the Art, Books, and Creativity (ABC) Institute, are hands-on, participatory, and fun. The Educator Summer Camp explores the museum’s collection and resources, introduces historical and contemporary artists, and engages participants in experimental art-making and close-looking exercises.

Guest instructors include artists and educators from around the country. You will receive a recommended supply list, applicable digital resources, and a Zoom meeting link in advance of each session. Camp activities are designed to make use of materials and tools that you might have at home and encourage repurposing and seeing everyday objects in a new light.

Register for one session, some, or all, depending on your interest and commitments. Session participants can request certificates of completion reflecting total earned participation hours.
