Junior Docents: Surreal Inventions (online sessions still available)
Become a Junior Docent at The Dalí Museum’s weeklong camp, where attendees discover new ways to interpret and create art, meet new friends and have fun. This year’s theme will focus on surreal inventions and the ways surrealist art reimagined the world. The Museum offers week-long camps in both face-to-face and online versions.
Junior Docent Art Camp is open to Elementary and Middle School students, ages 9-14. Students will be divided into smaller break-out groups to allow for age-appropriate instruction and social interaction.
In this program, campers will learn the fundamentals of interpreting a painting, plus how to share a compelling story and gain a deeper understanding of the power of images. Not only will students learn about Salvador Dalí and surrealist art, they will be empowered to think independently about art and express their own thoughts.
The week will conclude with recorded presentations by each student that showcase their personal voices, Dalí knowledge and their very own surrealist art. These presentations will be shared on the Museum’s website.

Why attend Junior Docent Art Camp?
Our instructors are familiar with our collection and have experience in teaching art. Our goal is to provide safe social interaction while continuing to feature the cornerstones of our program, such as learning about Dalí, presenting a painting and making original surreal art.
