Kids Cabinet of Curiosities Painting Camp

with Kelsey Doherty


The cabinet of curiosities has captivated the minds of humanity for centuries. Enroll your child and allow them to explore strange worlds, investigate scientific marvels, and paint directly from the Academy's own collection of curiosities.

Students will work from observation painting arranged still lifes that showcase our vast collection of skulls, bugs, and oddities. Get weird, historical, and painterly this summer @ 10 Nassau.

Gouache is a historical painting medium used in various forms dating back to ancient Egypt. The paint we know and use today became wildly popular during the 19th century and was often used with pastels and pencils in mixed media format.

Gouache is similar to watercolor but has been modified to be opaque. This allows artists to build layers similar to oil but leaves a chalky matte finish.
