Family Ceramics Workshop

This is a great opportunity for you and your little ones to spend some quality time together while having fun and being creative. Our teaching artists will guide you through basic hand-building techniques allowing your family members to create their own unique ceramic objects. These will be glazed and fired by our technicians, ready for collection in 3 to 4 weeks. Family ceramic workshops are suitable for children between the ages of 5 and 12 years of age, although we require that they attend with a participating adult.

Summer Camp

Weekly Summer Camps - June 5 through July 28

A cool and creative way for your child to learn, Sarasota Art Museum camps are the best of summer. Your Young Artist will get a chance to look closely, experiment with new materials, and try new techniques with the Museum as their classroom!

Each week, your camper can explore new themes, activities, and projects inspired by Art and Artists on view at Sarasota Art Museum. Our Teaching Artists will work with your campers to install their own Art Show! Each session will have a new and exciting theme, so campers are encouraged to enroll in multiple sessions. Learn more about our schedule and weekly themes below!

Summer camps at Sarasota Art Museum are for rising Kindergarten through rising Sixth graders.
