Art camps and classes for Youth
MCBA is proud to offer a variety of engaging class and daycamp opportunities for youth, in partnership with other Twin Cities arts and cultural organizations. These unique partnerships give your child the opportunity to expand their creativity and explore many different art forms hands-on!
These camps and classes are designed for youth to attend independently; for workshops where kids and their parents, grandparents or adult guardians can work side-by-side, please visit our Family Workshops page.

If you like to bring your imagination to life — creating characters, inventing new worlds — then Culture Camp is your kind of place! Working with teaching artists, you will create a play, dance to your heart’s content and give shape to your wonder. Spend one whole day immersed in the world of each of Culture Camp’s five arts organizations: Minnesota Center for Book Arts (MCBA), Children’s Theatre Company (CTC), In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre (HOBT), Highpoint Center for Printmaking, and Zenon Dance School. Work with artist-instructors at each site to create hands-on projects, performances, and more! Friends and family are invited to a presentation at each location each day at 2:45. Participants must provide their own transportation to each institution and bring a bag lunch each day.
Summer 2014 Themes:
Ages 6-7: “Mythical Pets and Their Friends”
