Mud Daubers Summer Camp 2017

Mud Daubers Summer Camp at the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art is an especially fun time for kids, teens, and adults! Our City of Biloxi Center for Ceramics (CFC) houses a fully equipped ceramics studio, computerized kilns, classrooms, and community meeting spaces. The CFC allows us to offer art classes from pottery to carpentry to drawing and much more for all ages, novice to professional artists in our community.

It’s a real art camp! Spend a week of fun at the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art and explore the ceramic arts, painting, found objects, sculpture, and much more! Campers will have adventurous experiences looking at, talking about, and making art. Summer Art Camp at OOMA is conducted by a team of fun and creative professional museum educators and regional artists. Art classes are held Monday through Thursday; Friday culminates in a special art reception in which students get to show off their creations.
