Camp MoCA Exhibition Details

We invite you to join us in celebrating the creativity, growth, and passion of our campers at the end-of-summer exhibition that will showcase the incredible artistic achievements and life skills our young artists have developed during their time at Camp MoCA Westport.

This summer, our young artists at Camp MoCA Westport embarked on an unforgettable adventure of self-discovery, family connection, and community engagement. Through the exploration of diverse art styles and renowned artists, they delved into themes of self-expression, family, and community, while honing their artistic skills and fostering character-building traits such as trustworthiness, responsibility, respect, fairness, and citizenship.

Our campers discovered the transformative power of the ‘ish’ mindset, which encourages creativity and self-expression without the constraints of perfection. Embracing this approach, they learned to appreciate the beauty of imperfection and focus on the process of creating, experimenting, and learning.

In the realm of family, campers engaged with various family-themed lessons inspired by celebrated artists, creating artworks that celebrated love, family diversity, and personal history. These activities allowed them to develop valuable character-building skills, such as responsibility, fairness, and respect, in the context of family life.

Lastly, our young artists immersed themselves in the concept of community by participating in lessons inspired by renowned artists. They created collaborative artworks that highlighted the importance of community connections, teamwork, and active citizenship. They reflected on their camp experiences and developed personal action plans to be responsible community members.
