Shawnee—Amazing art adventures are available for kids ages 3-13 this July at the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art!

For children ages 5-13, Creative Arts Camps draw inspiration from the museum’s collections, taking a closer look at how incredible art is created. July 9-13, students work with artist Alisha Weston to learn how to create their favorite cartoon characters and learn the basics of classic frame-by-frame animation.  July 16-20, artist Susan Beth Wilhelm gives students an in-depth experience using watercolor painting—teaching them layering, masking, resist, salt blooms, and more.  July 23-27, students create all kinds of mosaics from traditional tile mosaics to those created from unexpected materials with artist Debra Christian.  Learn more at

For tiny tots, Primary Partners classes enable children ages 3-6 (with the help of an adult partner) to explore the galleries, make art, and enjoy a story.  On July 30, Lynn Pollei will guide students and their partners in creating mixed media camels, following a gallery reading of How the Camel Got its Hump.
