Youth and Teen Studio Programs

We are pleased to offer Art Kits available for purchase to help families engage with Mia’s collection and create art at home. Registration for Summer Art Kits opens on April 9. For questions about Art Kits, please contact youthprograms@artsmia.org.

For free activities to enjoy, check out Art From Home.

About the Art Kits

Designed by our qualified art instructors, Art Kits contain all the materials and instructions students will need to experience Mia’s studio classes, mailed to your home! Students will learn about masterpieces in Mia’s collection, work on basic art skills, explore self-expression through at-home activities, and receive virtual creative support from teaching artists.

Each kit includes:

  • Select supplies unique to each camp
  • Optional add-on: a complimentary set of basic art supplies can be added to the art kit at checkout. Supplies include markers, colored pencils, a scissor, glue stick, and construction paper. These items are different from the supplies unique to each camp that are automatically included in each kit.
  • Optional add-on: A complimentary personal sensory kit can also be added to the kit at checkout. They will include fidgets and other sensory and communication tools to support learning and exploration of the kits.
  • Art activities appropriately designed for the age and theme of your camp
  • A schedule for virtual “office hours” during which you can contact your camp instructor for activity support via video chat.

All Art Kits will be mailed out the week before your first virtual office hour. You will receive an email the Friday before your scheduled office hours with the google meet video links, as well as other information about your kit.
