Join our online summer camp, as we learn, create and exhibit works from some of Louisville’s most creative and gifted artists – YOU! We will stream into your home on the Zoom platform. Campers will virtually tour Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby Museum. They will learn about Derby Art & History, and participate in lessons ranging from drawing and painting, to using household materials to create their very own Derby Hat to sport on September 5th for Derby 2020!
