At the open house, families will have an opportunity to meet the faculty, see student work, and learn more about MICA's summer camp program for children in grades 1 through 8. This event is free and open to the public.
Each summer, MICA's YPS Summer Art Camp allows children from grades 1 through 8 to immerse themselves in an array of intensive art studio experiences and recreational activities. Courses are offered at MICA's Mount Royal campus and at the Ward Center for the Arts at the St. Paul's Schools. Each class is developed to suit the educational needs of specific grade levels. Families can select from a range of classes and additional services to assemble a program of activities that fit their schedule and their children's interests.
