Summer Art Camp

Summer Art Camp Status Update

As MSU continues to evaluate the safety of our campus and community in response to COVID-19, our campus has made the difficult decision to cancel all summer camp programs. This includes Summer Art Camp at the MSU Broad.

We were disappointed to cancel camp, but we still wanted the chance to make art together this summer! That's why we've launched Sketchbook Club, a remote summer learning opportunity for young artists aged 6–18. Learn more about Sketchbook Club here.




This is not your average art camp! Learn to see differently, rethink the familiar, and explore the endless possibilities of art-making every day at the MSU Broad Summer Art Camp! Camp meets for weekly sessions from 9am–3pm daily.

Bring your imagination and creativity to art camp this summer at the MSU Broad!

Need-based scholarships are available. See below for more information.

$250/week — enroll by March 15 for $50 off!
