Art Quest @ Home Summer Camps

In response to challenges presented by Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and the uncertainties surrounding our ability to meet in person as groups for the foreseeable future, the Stark Museum of Art Education department has developed a series of web-based at-home summer art kits. These web-based Art Quest @ Home summer art kits will offer a weekly project with supporting visual arts activities that participants complete at home with the virtual guidance of a Stark Museum of Art Educator. Art Quest @ Home summer art kits are designed to accommodate students entering 1st-6th grades in the 2020-2021 school year with an interest in visual art.

Participation and receipt of an Art Quest @ Home Kit is made on a first-come, first-served basis.

Online registration begins June 15, 2020 at 9:00 a.m.
