Kids Create! 2020: Canceled & Postponed to June 2021

 

Canceling M&G Kids Create! 2020

We’ve been wrestling with both our concern for your safety and our desire to serve you and inspire your young creatives through art this summer. So, we’ve determined that it is best to postpone our in-person Kids Create! summer art day camp to June 2021 instead. We will be contacting those who are currently registered for Kids Create! 2020 regarding refunds. If you have registered, but do not hear from us by May 26, please contact us at 864.770.1331 or contact@bjumg.org.

Until we can serve your family in person, you are welcome to enjoy these M&G resources online:

  • Museum Careers: take a behind-the-scenes view of the various jobs in a museum and explore all the fun activity options in the sidebar too!
  • Van Gogh, Impasto Pioneer: view a short video about this talented artist (initially developed for our homeschool families) and find enrichment resources every family can enjoy!

 

Kids Create! Summer 2021

Elements of Art 

For first time kindergartners or rising 1st graders

If you have a K5 child that doesn’t want to miss out on fun with art, then bring your beginner to M&G for a special kindergarten camp focused on the Elements of Art.  Your child will enjoy multiple art projects, age appropriate lessons, interactive games, and snacks while learning about line, shape, color, and texture.  This 5-day morning camp will keep your young starter so engaged in fun, he won’t even know he’s learning!

Note: K5 campers must turn 5 years old by September 1, 2020

 

Pigments of the Past 

1st—6th grade (ages 6-12)

What is paint made of? Who invented the paintbrush? How has art changed over the centuries? Traveling through time, campers will peek into the lives of four historical artists—the postdiluvian man, a Chinese painter of the Song Dynasty, a fifteenth-century monk, and a twentieth-century color field pioneer. M&G’s summer art day camp is packed with artistic discoveries, snacks, new friends, and a chance to meet local artisans. This 5-day morning camp concludes with a special art exhibition and reception for the young artists to showcase their creative work for friends and family.
