Summer Adventures

Summer Adventures 2020 — Join us for a new summer adventure! 

We have reimagined Art Adventures, Writing Adventures, and the Creative Writing Workshop this year to accommodate the needs of our families and maintain safety protocols. Summer Adventures is moving outdoors and into your home!  Our art and writing teachers have carefully selected works from our collection to share with you through on-site instruction, and as take-away project kits.

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. Our 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 our beloved 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.  Art Adventures kits are also available without the in-person component, for shipping to a continental US address.

We are following social distancing guidelines including limiting capacity, staying 6 ft. apart, and requiring anyone over the age of 11 to wear face coverings.
