Around the World

Join us on an art exploration around the world. Each day will take you to a new place as we explore exciting cultures through arts and crafts, stories, music and more. Create African jewelry, Tibetan mandalas, Chinese brush painting, Mexican folk crafts, and much more.

Nature & Art

Give your child the chance to experience the transformative power of art and nature. Projects in assorted media, drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture and more will inspire creativity, promote well-being, and enhance your child’s connection to nature. This week we will utilize both the studio space and our beautiful grounds on the Mystic River to inspire our sense of natural wonder.

Specialty Camps for Ages 8 – 12

Art Gone Wild (full Day Program 9am – 4pm)

Explore and create in this cooperative camp opportunity that will bring out the nature-loving artist in your child. This shared camp between the Mystic Museum of Art (MMOA) and DPNC will use the natural landscape of the grounds and its animal residents as inspiration for constructing sculptures, textiles, sketches, paintings and more! Discover the wonderful sounds, patterns, colors, and rhythms of animals and how that can be translated into art. Get ready to go wild for animals and art!
