Louvre Abu Dhabi’s ‘Art Explorers’ Summer Camp Invites Children and Teenagers to Travel the World through Art

Part of Louvre Abu Dhabi’s rich summer programme, registration are now open for the Art Explorers Summer Camp; a specially designed educational programme for children and teenagers, allowing participants to explore the museum’s extensive collection and learn about the world’s cultures and history in interacting with the art on show. Kicking off in July, the programme is for everyone spending their summer in the UAE.

Equipped with an Art Explorers map and special rucksack, participants in Art Explorers for Children (ages 6-11) will embark on a creative journey inside the galleries and the Children’s Museum.

The programme offers hands-on activities that bring the collection to life through workshops, film and interactive games. Children will explore objects and characters in artworks, then create their own using their imagination. They will enjoy making 3D objects, drawing, exploring, playing, scrapbook-making and storytelling with other Art Explorers.
