All Access Digital Arts Camp

A two-week, multi-media summer camp for twenty Washington, D.C.-area High School students with cognitive and intellectual disabilities. The camp is conducted by a master teacher, and facilitated by volunteers, with a 1:2 volunteer to student ratio

ALL ACCESS Digital Arts Program Camp is an opportunity for high school students with cognitive disabilities in the Washington, D.C.-area to participate in a two-week multi-media camp at the Smithsonian Institution. Students participate in supported interactive learning experiences during the summer program comprised of up to 20 peers at the Hirshhorn Museum’s ArtLab+. Students explore areas of interest at different Smithsonian museums in a way that is tailored to meet their individual needs. After facilitated exploration and documenting their experiences using digital recording devices, students compile their digital media, create a digital movie, and share their digital work using social media with their camp peers and friends. The week culminates with a student movie premiere and reception for parents and friends. The camp is FREE to students and made possible by the generosity of a Smithsonian Youth Access Grant.
