Dwight-Englewood School’s Summer Connections Program is proud to offer our Young Visionaries Experience for the 6th year. In this exciting two-week Immersive Program, young artists will explore a wide variety of artistic mediums and subject matter and take a special trip to an 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.
New this year!
Our theme: Classic Art for the Modern World
This year will feature:
Brand new projects and new technology!
Each camp day will include three visual art workshop sessions, Acting class, and a lunch break. The Acting class will explore the craft of acting through improv and scene work. Students will also have recess and siesta before 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 field trip 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 try their hand as curators by exhibiting 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.
