Our staff stands ready to help develop your story.

Need a source? Our expert staff can speak to issues related to American art, university-museum affiliations, building a collection, collections care, country estates, and more.

Registration now open for Reynolda House’s reimagined Summer Adventures program

WHAT 
Summer Adventures is moving outdoors and into your home! While the museum remains closed, Reynolda has reimagined its summer programs (art adventures, writing adventures and creative writing) this year to accommodate the needs of families and maintain safety protocols through outdoor and online instruction and at-home only instruction kits. 

WHEN
July 19—July 31, 2020 (at-home only instruction kits available through the Fall)

WHO 
Grades K–5 for Art Adventures

Grades 1–5 for Writing Adventures

Grades 6–9 for Creative Writing Workshop

WHERE
Reynolda’s art and writing teachers have carefully selected works from the museum’s art collection to share with you through safe on-site instruction outside at Reynolda, online instruction, and/or as take-away only project kits.

HOW
At designated times on the first day, campers will meet with each teacher in person on the front lawn of Reynolda House, at safely distanced tables under a shady grove of trees or a tent. Museum teachers will introduce the artwork that inspired their project, and provide instruction about how to complete it. After meeting with each teacher and collecting project kits, campers and their families are welcome to enjoy the flora and fauna of Reynolda’s grounds. On the Friday of camp week, campers are invited to join for a virtual celebration and art exhibition. 

Art Adventures participants (grades 2–5) will receive four different project kits to create four original works of art. Writing Adventures (grades 3–5) and Creative Writing Workshop (grades 6–9) participants will receive a project kit with prompts to complete several written compositions of different genres, supplies to make a writing book or journal, and the  opportunity to receive feedback and editing from their teacher, remotely. Every take-away project kit will include a family pass for admission to the Museum.

Full and partial scholarships available (visit reynoldahouse.org/summer-adventures for details).  Art Adventures kits are also available without the in-person component, for shipping to a continental US address.

Social distancing guidelines are in place, including limited program capacities. While outdoors at Reynolda for Summer Adventures, all participants are asked to stay 6 ft. apart. Reynolda House is also requiring anyone over the age of 11 to wear a face covering.

Registration
Registration for in-person or virtual sessions ends July 16. Mailed kits are available through Fall 2020. To view full details and fees, and to register, visit reynoldahouse.org/summer-adventures.
