Campers travel to Japan and Africa this summer through original artworks in the Museum. Each of our camps encourage campers to experiment with new artistic techniques and materials while making connections between cultures. A world of discovery awaits your camper this summer!

Museum Academy

The Museum Academy is a unique experience in Birmingham that provides students in grades 6–12 the opportunity to learn from working artists in the Museum’s studios and original artworks in the galleries. Teaching artists at the Academy reflect the diversity of art and techniques represented in the Museum. Students emerge from the 12-week program with critical-thinking experience, discipline of practice, and a portfolio of original artwork that explores a variety of processes and media.

For more information about the fall 2014 session, to inquire about scholarships, or to register, contact Madeline Adams, Assistant Curator of Education for Family Programs, at madams@artsbma.org or 205.297.8148.
