The mission of Summer Arts @ the Museum is to provide an environment that encourages young artists to explore and create Art. This year, Summer Arts will focus on the concept of Looking @ Art. Students will develop their critical eye by Looking @ Art to assess historical context, identify formal components and extract meaning. Working with professional artists and university students, young artists will explore the use of drawing, painting, digital photography, printmaking, and computers to create art that conveys their own meaning.
