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.
Classes are held five days a week with a half-hour snack break and are taught by professional art educators. Sessions dates and times are as follows:
Session I: July 21-August 1, 2014
Session II: August 11-22, 2014
Ages 5-8: 9am-12pm
Ages 9-13: 1pm-4pm
Tuition (including a $50 materials fee) is for $650 museum members or $750 for non-members. Registrants will have the opportunity to sign up for membership in order to receive the discount.
