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.
Dressing Downton: Changing Fashion for Changing Times and Daubigny’s Studio Boat: Life on the Seine will provide inspiration to campers.
