Camps

Foster your children’s love of the arts and inspire their creative expression with the OKCMOA camp program! We offer a variety of age-appropriate, thematic sessions based on the Museum’s exhibitions and permanent collection. All sessions are led by professional educators, who provide guidance and encourage creativity with stimulating instruction and engaging activities. An exhibition of student artwork and reception in the main lobby tops off each camp on Friday, when students can share their fantastic creations and take their families on a tour of the Museum.
