Description

History and Art Camp at the Greenwich Historical Society

The History and Art Camp focuses on the two distinct time periods found at Bush-Holley House, Greenwich's only National Historic Landmark and the Historical Society's headquarters. The first week focuses on the New Nation era (1790 to 1825); the second week highlights the Art Colony era (1890 to 1920) when the site served as home and workplace for artists such as Childe Hassam and Elmer MacRae.

Professional staff includes museum educators and counselors who have a special interest in art and history. Reenactors, working artists, musicians and guest teachers round out the leadership team. Activities may include weaving, baking, candle-making, acting and field trips. Art instruction encompasses painting, pastels, sculpture, origami and photography. Parents' day, art shows and performances cap off each session.

Cost Two-week session: $550; One-week session (if available): $350.
