Summer Camps

Wrap up August with interactive, hands-on summer camps at Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh! Options include both MAKESHOP and Studio Arts.

Join us this summer to be curious, innovative, creative and experimental! We offer two camp experiences for Summer 2015.

  • Art Outside - discover plein air and mosaic
  • Printmaking - create your own designs utilizing screen printing and stamping
  • Sculpture - create with clay and make recycled sculptures
  • Textiles - try felting and dyeing fabric
