Art and History Camp

Greenwich Historical 2021 Camp info

Come explore Connecticut’s colonial history and Cos Cob’s Art Colony through games, crafts and hands-on fun .  Creative minds will spend time in our historic gardens and (air-conditioned!) barn, exploring their surrounding using art, science and old-fashioned ingenuity under the guidance of professional educators and artists.  Space is limited !

HISTORY WEEK CAMPERS  will be transported back in time to Greenwich’s colonial era. They will learn about important historical events as well as skills necessary for living in a time without electricity and running water. Campers will have the opportunity to weave, cook and create colonial art. They will also learn about the importance of a personal garden and about the plants that could be grown for cooking, medicine and creating natural pigments.

ART WEEK CAMPERS  will learn about the Cos Cob Art Colony and the avant-garde work of the impressionist artists that stayed at the Bush Holley House. Led by Master Painter Dmitri Wright, campers will have the opportunity to learn about color, light and form as they create their own unique works of art. Activities include painting en plain air, pottery and theater.
