Keeping kids active and engaged over the long hot summer is a challenge most parents face. The Foosaner Art Museum offers a Summer camp for kids that exposes them to art appreciation and allows them to try their hand at various mixed mediums. The camp has an overall theme: Have Art Will Travel, exploring different cultures and their contributions to art. The art classes are taught by local Artists, Art educators and aides with a student teacher ratio of 10 to 1 or less. The ages range from 3 years old through 6th grade. Students are taught an appreciation for art and Museum etiquette.

Did you know that Brevard County Libraries are encouraging Space Coast residents to participate in One Book Brevard, a community celebration of reading this summer?
