BE AN ARTIST OF OUR TIME!
Join MOCA Jacksonville for a summer camp for kids full of creativity. Children make new friends and learn art techniques in a variety of media through hands-on learning in a fun and engaging environment. Time is spent exploring exhibitions in the galleries, creating in the studios, and learning through practice. With the guidance of skilled museum educators, learners are empowered to problem solve through critical thinking, observation, and creative self-expression.
Themed weekly camp sessions are available for ages 6-14 throughout the summer, in line with the Duval and St. Johns County public school calendars. Before care and after care options are available. Learn more below and register today on our website!
