Summer Art Program

In June and July, the Museum hosts an annual Summer Art program for youth ages 8 to 14. Focusing on a specific theme, students create two and three dimensional art projects, meet interesting speakers, participate in a field trip, and present a special program for our Summer Art families.

For more information, contact the Onslow County Museum.
