NEW CANAAN, CT – The Silvermine School of Art Summer Camps are back! Offering week-long art camps for students ages 5-17, Silvermine provides extraordinary opportunities for young children and high school students to learn from regionally and nationally known artists—while meeting new friends and having fun on Silvermine’s five-acre campus. Students will gain new skills, deepen knowledge of technique and composition, or strengthen a portfolio for college.
With its many art studios, sculpture walk, and picturesque pond with waterfall, Silvermine’s campus and landscape views enhance the experience of attending camp. Students can sketch by the waterfall, learn a number of artistic disciplines, and enjoy a sense of camaraderie in a creative environment. The School of Art offers over 100 art studio sessions in ceramics, metal, woodworking, oil and watercolor painting, glass flame working, mixed media, papermaking, bookbinding, photography, drawing, comics, puppetry, and storyboarding for animation and film, to name a few. Silvermine provides young people with an opportunity to learn expression through the arts and to participate in hands-on classes with their peers in one of the oldest artist communities in the country.
Camps and workshops run in one-week sessions in the morning and afternoon, with the option to combine morning and afternoon camps for a full-day experience. Sessions are available for two age groups: Youth (ages: 5–11) and Teens (ages 12–17). The first session begins on June 21, and sessions run through August 27. Silvermine will also offer a Back-to-School Workshop for ages 5–10 from Aug. 30–Sept. 2.
Silvermine re-opened its doors last June for in-person classes and summer camps and has been consistently following all CDC and CT State guidelines to keep students, instructors, and staff as safe as possible while continuing to provide world-class art education to its students of all ages.
