Bring out the artist in you! Art comes in many different forms and from many different cultural influences. Art truly has no bounds! Experience different art techniques in a wide variety of subjects in this fun, interactive summer camp. From simple watercolor paintings to using wood and fabric in your art pieces, to utilizing different beading techniques and Native American cultural styles, you’ll learn it all at The Journey Museum & Learning Center's STEAM Camp.

STEAM Camp takes you on a grand journey of art techniques. Learn the history of various types of art and partake in art activities such as candle-dipping, weaving and knitting, decorating rag rugs and parfleche containers, creating your own depictions of Lakota stories, making space art, beading, demonstrating the watercolor techniques of pioneer history female figure, Grace French, and much more. Guest artists will visit and teach you their specialties and help you to create your very own masterpieces that you can take home and show off.


Art has been part of our community and society for many years. Through this unique summer camp, you will learn about the history of not only art in America, but art in the Black Hills and which people groups have influenced which different types of art. STEAM camp aims to not only teach you how to do different types of art techniques, but where those techniques came from and how they came to be.


Discover your favorite type of art and hone in on what type of artist you are by experiencing and testing out different styles of art during The Journey Museum & Learning Center's STEAM camp. Who knows; some day we may be featuring your artwork in our Stanford Adelstein Gallery or Sioux Indian Museum Art Gallery.
