Summer Arts on the Hudson is Garrison Art Center's highly acclaimed arts immersion program for young people entering grades K–8. While the focus is on the artistic, the program is designed to stimulate all children's interests and creative potential. Students will utilize a wide range of materials in traditional and experimental approaches, emphasizing shared discovery and friendly fun. 

Students have the option to enroll in either all four weeks, or a single two-week session. We do not offer one-week sessions. Continuity is a crucial component of this progressive program, designed to build on skills and knowledge and to offer children the opportunity to experiment in an open-minded and congenial environment. Through this process, children finish with increased confidence and a strong sense of accomplishment.

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. We welcome all young artists in 2022 as we further explore the theme of Art is Everywhere! This summer’s theme will allow our teaching artists to introduce students to a wide range of artists, art history, and art-making. Students will be engaged in collage, painting, sculpture, papier-mache, and more. Our dedicated teaching staff is comprised of highly credentialed teaching artists, whose knowledge and open approach will encourage and nurture all students.
