Customizable Experience Ensures Creative Summer Fun for Any Schedule
MELBOURNE, FLA. — Florida Institute of Technology’s Foosaner Art Museum is offering half- and full-day Summer Art Camps in a variety of disciplines.
The camps, which run Tuesday-Friday from June 3 through July 25, feature small classes taught by art educators and a focus on creative development, art appreciation and fun. Each week, campers visit the Foosaner Art Museum galleries, observing and learning about both the museum’s current exhibits and its permanent collection. The guided gallery tours emphasize the importance of the art/art-viewer relationship and inspire students for their hands-on experiences at the nearby Renee Foosaner Education Center.
Morning camps run from 9 a.m. to noon (pre-K and kindergarten camps are from 10 a.m. to noon), and afternoon camps are from 1-4 p.m. Full-day camps combine morning and afternoon camps. Grades and age divisions are preschool (3 years – 5 years, including rising kindergarteners); rising 1st and 2nd graders; rising 3rd and 4th graders; and rising 5th and 6th graders.
Participants may customize their experience by signing up for one week, three weeks or all eight weeks of art camps. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis and all participants must register in advance.
There are three ways to register:
- Online at www.foosanerartmuseum.org
- Call (321) 674-8923
- Visit the Renee Foosaner Education Center, 1520 Highland Ave. in the Eau Gallie Arts District, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
Morning and afternoon camps are $80 per week for Foosaner members and $100 each for non-members. Full-day camps are $180 per week for members and $200 for non-members. The camp fee covers the cost of all materials. Students provide their own snacks, a drink and lunch.
