The Hermitage is hosting six weeks of Summer Art Camp for ages 11-14. Campers can enjoy one or multiple weeks of camp at the Hermitage Visual Arts Studio. The camp day runs from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with a morning session from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., lunch and outdoor time (weather permitting) from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m., and the afternoon session from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The camp day ends promptly at 4:00 p.m.
Campers will focus on several artistic mediums with the goal of completing a work of art in each medium. Lessons include a brief discussion on the history of the medium and examples of famous works in that medium. By the end of the week, campers will have created a mini-portfolio to share with family, friends, and teachers.
Each week incorporates a special tour of the museum, guest instructors, artist demonstrations, a nature walk, and time in the gardens and grounds. No previous art instruction is necessary but an ability to focus on one project for up to two (2) hours and an appreciation for art is encouraged!
