Mapmaker Mayhem! (Map-inspired Art) (in person)

Have you ever stared at a map and marveled at its lines and shapes and colors? Well, many artists have been awed and inspired by maps too. Ages 6-9

Explore many kinds of maps, both realistic and fantastical, from early examples of cartography to more modern day examples like Google Earth! Students create their own maps using a variety of materials and processes including printmaking, drawing, and collage. The focus is on symbolism, line, texture, color, and imagination. The week includes a mini-field trip to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts to view artworks that feature maps. At the end of the week, families and friends are invited to view the students’ presentation of their cartography skills.

Open to students ages 6–9. MCAD strictly adheres to these age guidelines and is unable to allow exceptions. Please review our complete Summer Youth Camps Policies as well as our General Policies before completing your registration. Covid policies and protocols and information about extended care options through Children's Theatre Company are included in the Summer Youth Camps Policies page.
