Visual Arts at the Cummer
Led by Meredith Matthews
CAP’s summer visual arts program at the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens will turn students into art detectives investigating the incredible exhibitions at the Cummer and using what they learn to create their own unique artworks. During four fun days of gallery observation, garden exploration and art creation, our motto will be “notice what you notice!” In the galleries, students will look for two types of clues that help uncover an artwork’s meaning—their personal responses to the artwork and the details found within. In the studio, students will use the same investigative mindset to uncover their unique artistic voices by experimenting with different materials and creating multi-layered art pieces ready to go home at the end of the week.
This free summer visual arts program is for students entering grades 4-8. No previous visual arts experience is necessary.
