“They are also being exposed to amazing galleries. They’re learning that the museum is a warm and welcoming place here to serve them and their community,” said Annie Vanoteghem, AMA director of education and programming.

AMA will have art camps for kids in kindergarten to 7th grade.

The dates for the Libby Womack Holiday Workshop are from Dec. 20-23.

Vanoteghem detailed some of the activities.

“They will be making Christmas presents, cooking, baking and decorating with them. We will be doing dance parties, watch movies, play outside, and we will end our last day with a pajama party. The kids can come in their pajamas and watch movies and at noon on the day. Santa will be making a visit,” said Vanoteghem.

The Parents Recovery Holiday Camp workshop will be from Dec. 27-30.

“They will be focused on winter and New Years and the 2022 Olympics that will be coming up. So, they will be doing some Olympic games. They will be doing projects and art lessons. They will be doing a New Years celebration on the last day where they can wear their pajamas again, have a pizza party and ring in the new year,” said Vanoteghem.
