Summer Art Kits

Designed by our qualified art instructors, Summer 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. Kits will be mailed the Monday before the start date listed on the kit.

Each kit includes:

  • Essential art materials as well as select supplies unique to each camp
  • 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. 

You may also purchase a Summer Art Kit to “Pay it Forward” by purchasing a kit for one of our community partners.
