Join us this summer for a unique blend of indoor and outdoor creative adventures! Our popular Summer Art Lab program has been designed with 5 newly-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 the creative process. With the chance for exploring the fresh air of our forests and trails paired with devoted studio time in our Manes Art and Education Center, Art Lab artists will create unique works of art in a memorable summer experience.
Our educator Einav 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. All artmaking materials are included.
Enrollment is limited to 10 students per session and pre-registration is required. Register for 1, 2, 3, 4, or all 5 weekly sessions!
