Youth Summer Programming

PAAM Youth Education is pleased to offer summer programming for youth ages 4 – 14.

A series of short sessions will explore a wide variety of media, topics and projects including but not limited to painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, graphic novels, and fiber arts. Participants may choose to register for a selection of sessions or the entire program; a minimum enrollment of one week is required.

All summer programs will be held at PAAM or Wellfleet Preservation Hall. Sessions will incorporate both indoor and outdoor spaces and may include walking field trips around Provincetown and Wellfleet historic neighborhoods.

Interested in learning more about fiber arts? Join us for a workshop exploring embroidery and the creation of soft sculpture. Participants will gain hands-on experience designing and developing embroidery stitches, assembling their own sculptures, and creating new designs on clothing and canvas bags.

Collage with Antonia DaSilva: July 26-28

Have you ever tried collage? In this workshop we will create a variety of projects using a large array of collage materials: colored paper, found images from magazines and books, text, felt, fabric, wood, cardboard, and perhaps some glitter and neon. We will use all these materials to develop our own cohesive images and objects. We will work in both two and three dimensions to experiment, create, and most importantly, have fun!
