Week 1: June 11-15
Iconic and Everyday Sightseeing in NYC

We’ll start our summer in NY City by hopping on a double-decker bus tour, creating based on iconic landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, Times Square, Yankee Stadium, Rockefeller Center, and the Empire State Building.  Everyday items found in the Big Apple are some of the most important artifacts and instances of memorable design. We will spend time discovering everyday objects that are some of the most important artifacts and instances of memorable design in the Big Apple too!

Week 2: June 18-22
Nature in New York

When we think of big cities we think of concrete and skyscrapers but NY City also is home to America’s earliest natural attractions. We will explore the granddaddy of all New York’s natural attractions and wonders, Niagara Falls, the largest waterfall throwing 1.5 million gallons of water off the falls every second. We will explore the botanical side of New York: Central Park, The Floral District and the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. This week is about finding out where art and nature come together.

Week 3: June 25-29
The Wild Side of NY

After checking out the green side of NY City the natural next stop is the animals. The City is home to several zoos: the Bronx Zoo, Central Park and Tisch Children’s Zoo and Prospect Park Zoo. This week we will make art based on the beautiful animals that know this city as home.

Week 4: July 9-13
It’s a Small World

One of the major features of NY City is its incredible cultural diversity. This week we will be exploring some of the most populous ethnic neighborhoods in the city through customs, food for the body and art, food for the soul.

Week 5: July 16-20
Fashion Forward

NY City is well known as one of the fashion capitals of the world and the root of that is in the Garment District. This week we will explore the art of fashion and fibers. From weaving fibers and dyeing and printing and sewing fabric to fashion design and photography it’s all art.

Week 6: July 23-27
From MOMA to Graffiti

Art is everywhere in NY City from museums to galleries to street art; from masterworks to the art of everyday people. This week is the most self-indulgent yet. We will dive in to the vibrant visual art scene and artists of NY City and be inspired to create.

Week 7: July 30-August 3
From Broadway to Street Performers

Art is everywhere in NY City from Opera Houses and Broadway shows to community theaters and music venues to people on the streets performing for passersby. The Performing Arts include singing, dancing, acting and playing musical instruments. A lot also goes into performance art backstage. We will explore the visual art of props, costumes, masks, and make-up, lighting and promotion.

Week 8: August 6-10
As We Live and Move

We wrap up our summer in NY City with art focused on the architecture and transportation of NY City. Nothing says NY quite like the skyline, the subway, Yellow Taxis, The Ferry and the bridges. This week we will focus on form through sculpture in a variety of materials.

Off-Site Camps are in addition to the Anderson Arts Center Warehouse based camps and take place at different library site locations in Anderson County.
