“MOCA Art Camp is a cornerstone of MOCA's mission to develop a life-long appreciation of the arts in our youngest visitors,” said MOCA Director Caitlín Doherty. “The curriculum is specifically designed for each age group to capture their imagination with innovative projects that fuel their creativity.”
Students created more than 600 art projects, developing skills in drawing, painting, collage, printmaking, clay, graphite, papier mâché, and other media. MOCA Jacksonville also offers projects inspired by video games for ages 7-10 and artworks that incorporate digital photography, digital imaging, and movie-making techniques for ages 11-14.
“MOCA Art Camp is a phenomenal way for students to have fun while making art,” said Anthony Aiuppy, the J. Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver Educator for Family and Children's Programs. “Holding Art Camp at the Museum gives young minds exposure to contemporary art and can unleash ideas and ways of seeing while engaging in the art-making process.”
