Winter Haven Art Camp 2019


July 8-19, 2019 (9am-4pm)

"Inside the Masters’ Studios"

The City of Winter Haven and Polk Museum of Art are partnering to bring Summer Art Camp closer to YOU!

Based upon the Polk Museum of Art’s summer exhibition, Inside the Masters’ Studios: Richard Haas Dioramas, campers will go back in time by studying the very rooms in which some of the greatest works of art of all time were created. Glimpses into re-imagined studios of some of the world’s most famous artists such as Vermeer, Corot, Picasso, and Pollock will inspire campers to produce their own artwork.

Give your child a FUN, CREATIVE and OPEN atmosphere to develop their love and appreciation for the arts today!

Max capacity for classes is 15 students.

All classes are taught by certified art teachers and/or art professionals. Background checks are conducted for all teachers and Museum staff.
