We are the caretakers of the arts and artists of Humboldt County
It is our goal to ensure that art is a part of everyone’s lives in Humboldt County, by supporting the artists who live among us and by offering free and low-cost arts programs and exhibitions to the public at the Morris Graves Museum of Art. Every year, we are proud to serve over 16,000 local students by bringing art banks into schools, as well as providing school tours, art camps, and monthly family arts day events.
We also work tirelessly to provide programs and resources that support and inspire the artists living and working among us. Since 2001, we have served as stewards for the Morris Graves Museum of Art which now serves as the hub for our work. In this historic building, we share the work of artists from both Humboldt County and around the world, and continually strive to make this vibrant space inviting and inspiring to all who call Humboldt County home.
Summer Break Art Camp!
Sign up now for half-day art camps at the Morris Graves Museum of Art!
Calling all creative kids! What better place to have some fun during summer break than your local art musueum? Art camp students will have the run of the building during this morning day camp, as they explore current exhibitions, talk about artists and art theory, and of course, make amazing art projects using media like pencils, paint, pastels, wood, clay, and much more!
Each session will have its own special theme that our projects will focus on:
June 26-30: Animals and ecosystems
July 10-14: Paper and book
July 24-28: Materials exploration
August 7-11: Exploring art styles and movement
August 21-25: Materials exploration
Students will work on projects independently and together, and then they'll express their creativity and museum discoveries through unique individual projects they can take home. This is a perfect opportunity to help kids keep learning, growing, and exploring all summer long!
