Imagination Vacation awaits children ages 7-11 this summer at Ormond Memorial Art Museum’s art and adventure day camps. This series of three-hour camps let children explore their creativity, style, and curiosity while having fun becoming a famous artist, mermaid, pirate, or honey bee.
Starting Wednesday July 7th from 9am-12pm, the first camp showcases the life and art inspiration of Frida Kahlo. Campers will create a flowerful accessory, make a painting in the style of Frida, and have fun taking pictures in a Frida flower photo booth in the museum gardens.
On July 20th from 9am-12pm one can sign up to become a pirate for the day in Pirate Treasure & Mystery. Kids can dress as their favorite pirate, look for hidden treasure in the museum gardens, then get creative while designing their own puzzle and pirate -inspired art projects.
For children that love exploring nature, learn what it’s like to be a honey bee for the day with Bee Keeper Diane Spoden on July 27th from 9am-12pm. Kids will make a special potted garden to bring home, that will attract bees and butterflies.
