Victoria and albert museum of childhood summer camp

Get ready for the V&A Museum of Childhood’s annual Summer Art Camp, a week full of creativity and fun.

Choose from different creative media, and work with artists to create music, films and artworks inspired by the museum’s collection. The cummer camp is aimed at ages 8-11 and lasts between 10am and 3pm each day.

Pick and Mix from the programme below (minimum booking 2 days).

Monday 30-Tuesday 31 July (2 days)

Sound and Music Experiments with School of Noise

The School of Noise will bring an exciting opportunity to be experimental with noise, sound and music. Children will get to have a go at a selection of the most unusual digital and analogue instruments, play with sound, make noise, and create compositions collaboratively.

There is no need to have experience playing music or using instruments to take part in, because music making should be fun and it is for everyone!

Wednesday 1-Thursday 2 August (2 days)

DIY Filmmaking with Albert Potrony

What happens to the toys in the museum after the last visitor leaves the building? Together with artist Albert Potrony, children will bring the collection to life, setting free its objects through film and fictional stories.

Develop characters, design costumes, make sets and props, and finally perform and film!

Friday 3 August (1 day)

Alternative Art and Design with Abigail Hunt

During the Alternative Art Day we will be thinking differently about drawing and making, looking and creating, using the museum as a starting point for new ideas.

Artist Abigail Hunt will bring a selection of fun, creative and imaginative activities that will encourage children to look closely, explore perspectives and be experimental with drawing and design.
