At MCAD Summer Camps kids are learning without realizing it; they are making, collaborating, playing, and experimenting in all types of mediums. As part of the most innovative and immersive studio-arts program in the Twin Cities, each camp inspires kids’ self-expression, encourages creativity, and instills an excitement for learning. 

Camp themes include drawing, mixed media, painting, printmaking, animation, portraits, color exploration, a partnership with the University of Minnesota Raptor Center, and more! 

“My kid is an artist at heart and I am glad to give her professional quality guidance and ways to think about art. We’ve driven home each day noticing the different kinds of art along the street—even the logos!” –Studio Kids Parent
