CMCA offers summer art camps on Zoom

Jun 08, 2020

Rockland — The Center for Maine Contemporary Art is offering two weeks of art camps this summer on Zoom. The camps, for ages 8 to 13, will be led by teaching artist Tara Morin. Working together online, campers will turn creative ideas into original works of art at home.

Camp fees include an art kit filled with the materials and tools needed for the week’s projects. In addition, campers and their families receive free admission to CMCA’s galleries and are encouraged to take inspiration from the art on display.

CMCA director Suzette McAvoy says, “In order to keep our community safe, this summer we’re offering our popular art camp program virtually. We know that parents and children will be looking for activities and ways to engage while physical gatherings are still not possible. We’re hoping our camps on Zoom can help fill the need.”

Week one of CMCA’s art camp runs July 27 through 31; week two runs Aug. 3 through 7. Both weeks begin at 9 a.m. and end at noon. For more information and to register, visit
