At Art of the Imagination Summer Camp, campers will learn that imagination has no bounds and explore their creativity alongside artists featured in the Museum and Museum staff!

Day 3 – The Art of Creating

  • Campers will design and make a figure or creature with a unique story with guidance from collector Maria Vasquez Boyd, visual artist Sue Moreno, and writer Miguel M. Morales.
