Dwight-Englewood School’s Summer Connections Program is proud to offer our Young Visionaries Experience.  In this exciting two-week intensive, young artists will explore a wide variety of artistic mediums and subject matter, meet an established visiting artist, and take a special trip to NYC.  The workshops provided in the Young Visionaries Experience will bring students a combination of lessons in art-making techniques and the development of creative ideas.  In a welcoming studio setting, collaboration with classmates will also be emphasized throughout the program.  Expert teachers will guide students through hands-on projects in drawing, painting, sculpture, mixed-media, woodworking, printmaking, and much more.  Historical and contemporary artworks from different cultures will also be incorporated into each teacher’s curriculum and serve as inspiration for a wide range of projects.

Each camp day will include three visual arts workshop sessions, a Movement or Acting class, and a lunch break with campers from the Summer Connections Adventures Program.  The Movement class will include a blend of yoga, sports, and outdoor activities.  The Acting class will explore the craft of acting through improv, clowning, and scene work. Students will also have siesta time after lunch to relax on the lawn with friends, read a book, sketch, or do group activities with our Young Visionaries teacher’s assistants. Our Visiting Artist session will give students the chance to meet a professional artist working in the field, who will share their artwork, lead a unique art workshop, and share field related experiences with program participants.  Additionally, the Young Visionaries Experience will host a trip into New York City to visit an art museum and other local sights.  During the trip, students will be given the opportunity to create drawings inspired by works of art in the museum and from the unique landscape of NYC.

At the completion of the Young Visionaries Experience, students will exhibit their artwork at a culminating event.  Parents, teachers, and students will gather together to celebrate the artistic accomplishments of program participants and make connections with one another over music and refreshments in the Young Visionaries Gallery.

We hope that your child can join us this summer for the Young Visionaries Experience and be a part of our community of creative thinkers, artists, and innovators.

All students are welcome.  Sign-up early to guarantee a spot in this special program. Space is limited.
