As the Kirk Newman Art School at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts approaches our 59th year of art camp, we have made the difficult decision to cancel traditional summer camp programs for 2020. We can only imagine how many times you have already had to tell your camper that something they were looking forward to would not be happening this year.

Thank you so much for your continued understanding, patience, and support of the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts through these challenging times. As a fun alternative we have developed Art Camp in a Box so campers can experience Art Camp at home. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Tuition for the children's and teen classes has been reduced through the generosity of John and Rosemary Brown.

Art Camp in a Box

Experience the fun of Art Camp conveniently in your home. Each Art Camp kit will include supplies and step-by-step directions to making your own projects at home. Let's look beyond our homes to find inspiration in the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts extensive collection.

Our kits have been customized from our collection to include artist fact sheets fun for kids to read as well as information to help facilitate a conversation about art. Art terms and other educational components will make this a complete Art Camp experience in a box.

Every kit will have supplies specific for our instruction sheets but can be used for many more art pieces both 2D and 3D. Ideas will be included and our Art Camp sketchbook for drawing warm ups to get the creative juices flowing. There will be enough materials available for a shared family experience technology free. Pick up for the kits will be available at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts

We hope you will want to come along for Art Camp in your home. To make the experience even more authentic, we will even include an Art Camp T-shirt to those who purchase the box first. This is a great opportunity to support the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts. Click here to purchase.
