Art & History Camp 2017

Another great session of camp is coming to a close. We had four weeks of camp — two weeks for campers entering grades 4-7  and two weeks for children entering grades 2-4. Sessions for each age group featured one week of a history focus and one week of art immersion.

Here are campers in Week 1 working together in a barn raising: 

They went on a field trip to the New Haven Museum and learned about the Amistad.

They also took a field trip to the PepsiCo sculpture park and created art en plein air on our campus just like the Cos Cob American Impressionist art colony did one hundred years ago. We are so lucky to have master painter Dmitri Wright instruct the budding artists so skillfully.

The campers loved learning how to weave and do embroidery work.

Younger campers also made butter, kites, molasses cookies, and horn books. Each week’s performance at the end of camp for family and friends is something the kids really enjoy.
