Garrison Art Center has announced that registration is open for Summer Arts on the Hudson, a three-week arts immersion program for children entering kindergarten through eighth grade. The art center provides children with a memorable summer experience filled with creativity, friendship and fun all taking place at the center’s inspiring riverside location on the Hudson River.
While the focus is on art, the program is designed to serve all interests and the creative potential that exists in each child. Children will look forward to painting, drawing, sculpture, book arts, pottery, and more.
Summer Arts on the Hudson runs from June 30 through July 18. Students will use a wide range of materials as they undertake projects designed by Teaching Artists that expand their 21st century skills —collaboration, communication, critical thinking and creativity. Through shared discovery and friendly fun, students explore traditional and alternative approaches to creativity that lead to the development of their visual literacy and understanding of their immediate and larger environment.
Each year a different theme is chosen to guide the curriculum, and along with the study of many artists and ideas, children begin the development of a richer artistic language. Visit garrisonartcenter.org to learn more about the program and to download registration forms.
