Q&A with the Taft Museum of Art:
What activities are offered at the Taft Museum of Art?
Our week-long camps will have campers painting, sculpting, and drawing and include excursions to Cincinnati destintions, including on-site “field trips” at the Taft Museum of Art.
What is the camper-to-counselor ratio?
How much time do the campers spend outside?
1-2 hours on average each day to work on art projects and for meal times.
Does the camp provide lunch/snacks or do parents need to provide them?
The Taft will provide snacks for students but parents are asked to pack sack lunches for their children.
What is the typical daily schedule for campers?
A typical day involves time for students to get to know each other, their teacher, and the Taft Museum of Art. Several art projects are overseen by the camp teacher, sometimes the projects may be based on a theme for the week, or artwork in the Taft’s collection or special exhibition. Campers will have leisure time to explore the gardens at the Taft and the opportunity for campers to experience and interact with other local visual and performing artists.
