More than 500 works, produced over the course of RAA’s kidsmART Summer Camp program, were on view for visitors on Tuesday and Wednesday, August 6th and 7th.

The showcase filled the RAA’s Main Gallery and extended into the building’s East Gallery. Painting, drawing, photography, assemblage and sculpture and a variety of other media were presented. All are part of the ongoing classes and activities offered by Camp kidsmART. RAA also offers afterschool programs at Fort Tilden and in a number of area schools.

Many agreed it made an interesting juxtaposition between artists ‘old’ and young.



A steady stream of visitors came out to view the more than 500 works at the special kidsmART exhibition. A steady stream of visitors came out to view the more than 500 works at the special kidsmART exhibition.
