Summer Art Day Camp

The Taft’s summer art day camps offer fun, intensive studios looking at, thinking about, and creating art inspired by artwork on view at the Museum. Each weeklong session ends with an exhibition organized by students and staff for family and friends.

This summer’s special exhibition, Treasures from the Berger Collection: British Paintings 1400–2000, features paintings spanning six centuries of British history.
