Our Summer Camp is open to students from grades 2 – 12, with different sessions focusing on separate age levels.

Summer Camp at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art consists of 5 different sessions:

Art and Drama Camp: Grades 2 -5

Working with local artists and actors, children will learn basic art and performance skills, create the script, props, scenery and more for an original multi-act play performed on the last day of camp.

Art and Design Camp: Grades 2 – 5

Children will explore the intersection of art and design through jewelry-making, fashion, and other decorative arts to create functional, beautiful objects culminating with their own gallery show.

Photography 101: Grades 8 – 12

Inspired by the photography in the collection of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and the city of New Orleans, students will learn how to create powerful and impactful images. Students will learn the basic elements and foundations of photography including composition, lighting, exposure, and manual functions of their camera. Students will learn how to look at the world around them with a fresh perspective and how to communicate their ideas visually.

The camp will culminate in a student-curated photography exhibit. Students do not need to have prior photography experience.

Visual Culture: Grades 8 – 12

How do images affect us? How do artists communicate their ideas visually? Where do artists get their ideas? What do you have to say? Using photography as the lens for this exploration and the Ogden Museum as the backdrop, students will investigate the connections between art making, social justice and how art making can create social change. Students will learn about visual culture and how what we see affects our perception of the world around us.

The camp will culminate in a student-curated exhibit. Students should have a basic understanding of photography or take the Photography 101 camp.

Fashion Workshop: Entering Grades 7-12

The Ogden’s catwalk will be yours after this two-week intensive camp for wearable art, culminating in a runway presentation. Use your innate fashion prowess to create a signature style. Build your very own professional dress form and customize a runway-ready garment using basic clothing templates and sewing techniques. Learn industry standard fashion illustration and design. Then, walk the runway in our exciting finale to this two-week program. Workshop led by Parsons School of design graduate and former Seventh Avenue designer, Veronica Cho.

Summer Camp at OMSA will be held June 10 – July 29. Each week will be designated to a different session.
