Summer Arts Program at the Tucson Museum of Art Now Open for Registration

TUCSON, ARIZONA (March 1, 2016) – The Tucson Museum of Art (TMA) is pleased to open its popular Summer Arts Program for registration online at: https://www.tucsonmuseumofart.org/learn/family-and-youth/summer-arts-program/. The programs are half-days and full-days from June 6 – August 5, 2016 (with a week-long break July 4 – July 8) for ages 5 – 13. Classes of up to 15 children are grouped by age and combine visits to current exhibitions in the Museum and hands-on art-making projects. Classes cover a range of art techniques and themes, focusing on in-depth lessons in art making. Parents are encouraged to register early, as space is limited and many classes filled up last summer.

“TMA’s Summer Arts Program is a Child Care Licensed creative arts camp where kids have the exciting opportunity to learn about art, work with professional trained artists and educators, create their own masterpieces, and explore the Museum’s exhibitions,” said Morgan Wells, Curator of Education.

All Summer Arts Program teachers have Masters degrees and are either credentialed full- time teachers or professional artists.

Parents may join the Museum to enjoy the Museum Member discount for Summer Arts Programs by visiting: https://www.tucsonmuseumofart.org/give-join/membership/.
