Summer Camp returns to MARCO in face-to-face format

August of 2022


The traditional Summer Camp returned in its in-person format to the Museum of Contemporary Art of Monterrey (MARCO), after two editions held in virtual format due to the health contingency.

The activity aimed at girls and boys from 4 to 11 years old was from July 18 to August 5. Part of its program included activities to stimulate the creativity of the participants, based on two exhibitions in the museum: Pedro Reyes: Social Sculpture; and Sofía Táboas: Thermal range.

The content was addressed through thematic axes linked to the artists' works: participatory art, inclusion, equality, ecology, community, art as a means of change, social sculpture and space exploration.

Through the activities and content, the students learned about the works and worked with drawing, painting, watercolor, relief and sculpture.

Due to Covid-19 infection prevention measures, in the summer of 2020 and 2021 the camp was organized in person. This is the first time the camp returns to the in-person format.

“In the post-pandemic, it is important that children return to an in-person camp and recover that space to socialize, work as a team and develop skills in a fun way, in this case through art and play,” said Indira Sánchez, MARCO education manager.

Previously, MARCO organized the 2022 Spring Camp in person, from April 18 to 22.
