Wassaic Project Summer Art Program For KidsMay 7th, 2013 | By HV Insider | Category: In Your Town
THE WASSAIC PROJECT OFFERS CONTEMPORARY ART FOR KIDS SUMMER PROGRAM
The Wassaic Project will host a four-session Contemporary Art for Kids summer program at Maxon Mills, in the historic hamlet of Wassaic, NY. Artists will lead kids entering grades K-6 to make art inspired by the Summer Exhibition entitled “Homeward Found”. The program will meet each Saturday in July, from 10am-12pm. The participating kids will be separated into two groups by age.
The Wassaic Project’s Education Program strives to connect visiting and resident artists to the greater Northeastern Dutchess County and Northwestern Litchfield County communities. Artists will work with kids through hands-on activities, discussions and observational drawings and guide them to develop projects individually and in groups. The resulting artworks will be presented in a mini-exhibition at a reception for their families at the final meeting.
This program is free for students in the Webutuck Consolidated School District and has a $20 materials fee for all other students. The project is made possible (in part) through a grant from the Dutchess County Arts Council, administrator of public funds through the New York State Council for the Arts (NYSCA) Decentralization Program.
