Summer Art Camps return to the Museum for more creative fun! Select from our two exciting camps and get ready for jam-packed week of play and creation inspired by our world-class Museum Collection.

The Secret Museum DIY Film Collective with Albert Potrony
Age 8-11

What happens to the toys in the museum after the last visitor leaves the building? Do they have a life of their own? Together with artist Albert Potrony, children will bring the collection to life, setting free its objects through film and fictional stories. Develop characters, design costumes, make sets and props, and finally, perform and create sound effects.

Bringing Stories to Life with Sara Byers
Age 5-10

Get inspired by Michael Morpurgo: A Lifetime in Stories, to create your own stories and bring them to life through creative activities. With artist Sara Byers, you will explore characters, objects and scenes from books, then create your own using your imagination. A week of painting, making 3D objects, to large-scale collaborative sculptures.
