Spring is just around the corner and parents everywhere are gearing up for the end of the school year. It’s time to decide how to fill the summer with enrichment activities. Most parents focus on their child’s interests and look for opportunities that their child will embrace. If your child is interested in the visual arts, the Woodson Art Museum has the ideal opportunities . . .summer art camps for students ages 5-18.

Children who enroll in Take Art to the Wild Side will create animal masks, pattern printpaper, rain sticks, and camouflage paintings. Ages 5-7 meet on Tuesday and Thursday, July 14 and 16 from 9 – 11:30 am. Tuition (includes supplies and deposit) is $30 for Museum members and $35 for non-members. Ages 8-10 meet on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, July 13, 15, 17 from 9 – 11:30 am. Tuition is $45 for Museum members and $50 for non-members.

Do you have a child age 11-18 who is serious about art? Then Art: Naturally will be an invigorating week for him or her. Teens will make animal masks, block prints, portraits, and sculpture and spend a day with live bird and animal models from the Northwoods Wildlife Center in Minocqua. Students ages 11-13 meet Monday – Friday, July 20 – 24, from 1 – 4:30 pm; ages 14-18 meet Monday – Friday, July 27 – 31, from 12:30 – 4:30 pm. Tuition is $110 for Museum members and $130 for non-members. At the end of each week, Art: Naturally participants create an exhibition of their artworks at the Museum to be viewed by family and friends. Those in the second session will leave their artwork up at the Museum through August 30.

To register for any camp session call 845-7010. A $20.00 non-refundable deposit is required; full payment due by July 1.

Spending time during the summer exploring the visual arts at an art museum is a rare opportunity in north central Wisconsin. Your child will create art and view and discuss artwork created by professional artists. An extra bonus is that your child will study art with professional Museum staff who know how much art enriches lives.

It’s going to be a very special and exciting summer at the Woodson Art Museum!
