Hill-Stead Stanley Witman Summer Camp

August 5 – 9
9 am to 12 pm

At Home with Art sparks the imagination of creative kids!

Geared for children ages 7 – 11

At home with Art uses Hill-Stead Museum as an expanded art studio.  Each day’s activities begin with a visit to the historic rooms to gather inspiration and learn artistic techniques from the exceptional architecture and the extraordinary collection of paintings, pastels, sculpture, prints and ceramics.  Afterward, children experiment with hands-on creativity while applying what they have learned to their own works of art with the help of experienced educators.

Week 3: Printmaking

Through the centuries, people have been able to collect art and learn about it through prints and etchings. Many of the Impressionist artists who painted pieces in Hill-Stead’s collection studied Japanese printmaking for its fresh approach to composition. The Popes loved all kinds of prints and they collected an amazing array of styles and subject matter. Students will learn more about Hill-Stead’s prints and will practice various printing methods like monoprint, relief printing and Lino print to create copies of their own original artwork.
