Coming Attraction: Hammer K.A.M.P. for Kids

The Hammer Museum in Westwood is launching its inaugural kid-focused Hammer K.A.M.P. (Kids' Art Museum Project) on Sunday, May 16, and it sounds amazing.

From painting to sculpting to photography, professional artists will lead workshops for children ages 4-14 in the Hammer courtyard.

Not only that, but there will also be story time, with readings from actors Cary Elwes, Jodie Foster (!), Breckin Meyer and Hilary Swank.

From 10 a.m.-2 p.m., the event will offer kids and their families access to the museum's exhibits and galleries, as they participate in the workshops led by artists including Edgar Arceneaux, Brian Bress, Francesca Gabbiani, Gustavo Godoy, Anna Sew Hoy, among others.

Keep in mind that the day camp is not inexpensive. Tickets are $100 per person. I know I usually focus on wallet-friendly adventures, but this just sounds cool. Plus it's the museum's first year hosting the event, and hey, maybe you'd like to save up for next year.

Also, all proceeds will benefit Hammer Kids' free public programming -- always a worthy cause.
