This summer the Whatcom Museum is hosting two teen art camp sessions that will introduce teens to concepts of design and various media and art techniques. For ages 11 – 18, these camps are open to students with any level of experience, and teens can participate in one, or both camps. Space is limited. Register by contacting Emily Dieleman at 360.778.8960 or by email.
