SUMMER PROGRAMS image for Newsletter 823

Embrace the world of creativity with Garrison Art Center's Summer Programs for kids and teens, Kindergarten to 12th grade!

For rising 9th to current 12th graders, teens are invited to participate in the Summer Art Institute (SAI), July 29-August 9. SAI is an intensive program designed to hone their skills and explore advanced artistic concepts with professional teaching artists. Students will explore printmaking, pottery, drawing, and plein-air painting along the Hudson River. The program concludes with an exhibition in our galleries, providing students with the opportunity to showcase their newfound talents and creations to their family, friends, and the community.

For the youngest artists, we present Summer Arts on the Hudson (SAH), an engaging program tailored specifically for rising K to 8th graders. Young minds will discover the joy of art, all while having fun! SAH is a full-day, 2-week program with two sessions available, July 1-July 12 and July 15-July 26. There is no program on Thursday, July 4. SAH ends with a gallery show open to family and friends.


Art a la Carte (ALA), August 12-August 23, is for rising 2nd to 8th graders. ALA offers kids the opportunity to explore art-making in our studios for a half- or full-day, one week or two. Kids will focus on mixed media, cartooning, clay, and other subjects and materials. 

Join us for an inspiring journey through art, where imagination knows no bounds!
