Summer Art Lab 2021
For children entering kindergarten Fall 2021 through age 10
At The Manes Education Center
Join us this summer for a unique blend of indoor and outdoor creative adventures! Our popular Summer Art Lab program has been redesigned to be explored in 4 themed week-long sessions. Using current exhibitions at the Nassau Museum, outdoor sculptures located on our 145 acre nature preserve, and contemporary artists as inspiration, Art Lab’s young artists immerse themselves in art making and experimenting. With the chance for exploring the fresh air of our forests and trails paired with devoted studio time in our Manes Education Center, Art Lab artists will create unique works of art in a memorable summer experience.
Our educator Katie makes sure to adapt experiences based on age and encourages students to explore a variety of new materials, techniques and processes to challenge and engage. Students and families can choose how many weeks they wish to sign up for.
Enrollment is limited to 10 students per session and pre-registration is required.
Each session runs Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 12 pm.
