Greenwich House is pleased to be able to provide the Summer Arts Camp program in Greenwich Village, the heart of the art world. With a long history of providing arts programming to New York residents, we are proud to offer a Summer Arts Camp for young people ages 7-14 at our Barrow Street location. Young artists will have access to our Greenwich Village historic buildings, equipped with classrooms and studios, and receive instruction from our talented and creative staff. All levels are welcome—the only requirement is a sincere interest in the visual arts!
Students will work on collaborative and individual projects in disciplines such as architecture, painting and drawing, cartoon art, ceramics, printmaking, and animation. Students will learn to feel comfortable expressing themselves artistically and within a group setting. We will participate in critiques and learn how to present and exhibit our work.
Throughout the week, weather permitting, campers will take field trips to movie theatres, museums, galleries, parks, and neighborhood attractions. In the past, students have visited such places as the Museum of Art and Design, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Drawing Center, The New York Skyscraper Museum, and The Bronx Zoo. We will also have our summer sleepover in mid-summer! Students will be supervised at all times by our qualified counselors.
Counselor-in-Training (CIT) Program for Teens
Our oldest group of campers, aged 13 and 14, will have the opportunity to work more independently from the younger campers. Teens will work in-depth on art projects, participate in counselor training workshops, and begin to learn how to supervise young campers. We hope to encourage maturity and independence in our oldest campers, and provide an environment for growth and self-discovery. Since space is limited, interested teens will be asked to apply for this program. A supplemental form is provided here.
Our goal is to provide campers with opportunities that build self-esteem through art and friendship. We also hope to provide campers with a variety of experiences to explore their artistic creativity and work collaboratively with other campers!
"Mariella very much enjoyed her time and came home every day with new stories, experiences and pieces of arts and craft – even recipes! She made friends easily and LOVED her counselors. It was a meaningful time combined with lots of fun, field trips and age appropriate activities (I had no idea she could sew that well – though I had practiced with her before!). The warm and nurturing atmosphere of Greenwich House came all back to us again. Of all the different camps that Mariella has attended this summer, Greenwich House is top of her list and we will certainly be back for more in 2014."
"Louisa had a wonderful time at Greenwich House camp and is very eager to do more camp and other activities at Greenwich House too. She really loved all the people at Greenwich House and we're very happy to have found this special place."
