This summer the Nassau County Museum of Art offers a two-week art program for children in a naturalistic setting. Children will experience art in and around the museum, and will enjoy and learn from the natural beauty of the trails, forests, gardens and ponds to be found on the grounds of the museum’s 145-acre Gold Coast estate. Summer Art Lab 2014 programs will be full of indoor and outdoor adventures that offer playful and creative opportunities for children through a mix of art making, science activities, group projects and more. Activities include hands-on art making (printmaking, sculpture, painting and more), sketching, gallery games, story time, outdoor scavenger hunts, hiking and journaling.

Session I: July 21-August 1, 2014
Session II: August 11-22, 2014

Ages 5-8: 9am-12pm
Ages 9-13: 1pm-4pm
