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, and take a special trip to a art inspired location. 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, sculpture, woodworking, mixed-media, printmaking, and more.
Each camp day will include three visual art 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 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. During the first week of the program, students will take a trip into New York City to visit an art museum and other local sights. During the trip, students will create drawings inspired by works of art in the museum, which will later be enhanced in the studio.
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.
