Garrison Art Center’s highly acclaimed Summer Arts on the Hudson offers children entering Kindergarten through 8th grades a truly unique learning opportunity. Located on the inspirational banks of the Hudson River, this daily program runs for three weeks providing young artists with a wide array of art experiences.
Summer Arts on the Hudson gives 50 to 60 young artists a warm and welcome place in which to learn new skills and expand their worlds. While the focus is on art, the program is designed to serve all interests, with an emphasis on the creative potential that exists within all children. 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 leads 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.
