Camp Kemper: Biomorphic Art (Ages 8-12)

Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art
10:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.
FREE | Ages 8-12 | Registration required

Kemper Museum hosts fun three-day art camps with activities inspired by artwork in the Museum. Campers will let their imaginations take over as they discover new and inventive ways of creating contemporary art! 

Theme: Biomorphic Art 
Explore how artists and architects use nature as inspiration for their artwork! In anticipation of the biomorphic art installation by Paul Henry Ramirez in Kemper Museum’s atrium—and architecture both in Kansas City and around the world—campers will create artwork inspired by organic shapes and forms.  

This session is currently at capacity, however registration on our waitlist is still available at Eventbrite:

Please Note: Due to the popularity and high demand for Camp Kemper, and to be able to impact as many families as possible, registration will be limited to one Camp Kemper Summer 2018 session (only) per child.
