Session 1: "Pop-Art'sy Timelines" (5 days) July 10-14 (Mon.- Fri.)
A wonderland of adventures awaits, as you transport yourself to a vibrant world of bold color, thick outlines line, and cartoon imagery.

Jump off the surface with American artists, Louise Nevelson & Julian Schnabel. This week children will learn to create relief sculptures, assemblages, and mosaic.

Session 3: “Fabulous Furry Friends” (5 days) July 24-28 (Mon.- Fri.)
Join us for a wild adventure of painting, sculpting, printmaking and drawing our furry and exotic animal friends. Our favorite live animal show will spark your imagination and curiosity. Study these fabulous creatures up close and see how they move, jump, wiggle and fly.

Session 4: “Splatter Crazy” (5 days) July 31-Aug 4 (Mon.- Fri.)
ReadySetPaint! Create an energetic collection of art inspired by Long Island’s own Jackson Pollock. Drip, splatter, drag, swirl, and blot your sculptures, drawings, crafts and paintings.
