Summer Camps at the MacLaren
The MacLaren offers up to twelve summer camps for children ages 6 to 13 years! Campers will have fun exploring a range of art media and innovative techniques in full-week camps throughout July and August. Create mixed-media artmaking, inspired by what you see and hear in Sound and Colour Camp or spend afternoons with regional artist Lois Green exploring drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture inspired the work of exhibiting artist Jaime Angelopoulos.
