Summer Camp at the BMA!

The Baltimore Museum of Art is now accepting enrollment for children's and teen's summer camps at the Museum!

Curious Minds Create for ages 8-12
Monday, June 21- Friday, June 25
9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
Led by BMA educators and a teaching artist, campers will engage with artists' materials and processes, look to the BMA's galleries for inspiration, and create dazzling art projects. During this one–week journey, campers will enhance their ability to think creatively and to express themselves through art.

Do-It-Yourself: Get Crafty for ages 12-14
Monday, July 19-Friday, July 30
9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
Got a crafty teen on your hands? Get them to the BMA for a little DIY fun. For two weeks, campers will investigate how artists transform ordinary materials—wood, glass, clay, and fiber—into extraordinary works of art. Museum educators and a teaching artist will lead the campers through the technical, "how-to" aspects of art projects and the exciting and inspiring new wave craft movement.

Go ahead. Humor yourself.

The Stamp Gallery presents Humor Yourself, an exhibition featuring the illustrations of local artists John Shipman and Rachel Bone, who combine whimsical, dreamlike images and concise, illustrative styles. Curated by University of Maryland students Danielle Brown ’10 and Eldis Sula ’11, Humor Yourself playfully explores the potential of illustrations to enhance our otherwise common perceptions of the world. These undisguised pieces—surreal but concrete, fantastic but minimal—take a rational approach to their irrational subject matter. By engaging viewers with their acute humor and sharp irony, these pieces invite the audience to focus their imaginations on single fanciful moments in order to make connections between illusory subjects and the precise, fastidious manner in which they're portrayed. If you don't believe the disparity between fantasy and reality can be reconciled, these works dare you to fill in the gaps. Opening reception is tomorrow, May 19th from 5-7pm.
