Summer Camp Program

The Teen Arts Academy at the Museum of Art – DeLand is a unique summer camp program designed especially for kids age 12 – 15. Participating students will explore new avenues of creative thinking and innovative art making in an inspiring Museum setting. Through an array of hands-on activities with various art mediums, multimodal literacies, inquiry-based learning, educational games, reflective practices, and meaningful discussions, Teen Arts Academy participants will be encouraged to inquire, explore, reflect, CREATE, and grow!

The Teen Arts Academy meets at our downtown DeLand location at 100 N. Woodland Blvd. from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Monday-Friday of each week.

This year, we are thrilled to have Dr. Rajni Shankar-Brown design and facilitate two weeks of her interdisciplinary summer learning and arts academy, Youth Create! Dr. Shankar-Brown is an award-winning and internationally renowned Stetson University professor, published author, poet, artist, and endowed chair of social justice education.
