SummerArts offers four weeks of multi–arts workshops for children entering grades 3-9. Each week, students take part in a wide variety of artistic activities with daily sessions in visual arts, music and movement/theater, led by teaching artists who are experts in their field. In between classes kids can play outside, spend time with friends or work on a project at their own pace. Workshops for older students are more intensive and provide an opportunity for more sophisticated exploration and execution. The SummerArts program is specially designed  to provide kids with a deeply creative, artistic experience.  Themes and activities vary each week, giving students the chance to explore art in many forms and diverse media. Many campers are introduced to new artistic expressions and media that they never knew they loved!  Classes are perfect for beginners as well as more seasoned creators.   For more information, please email the Director: summerarts@riverarts.org #SummerArts

Artists of all experience levels and backgrounds are welcome, especially those that have always wanted to try their hand.  In this non-instructional event, we aim to create a relaxing, social and inclusive environment for the community to come together for a fun night of drawing.  After some mingling with fellow guests, participants will have an opportunity to capture the human body in poses of different lengths, with breaks for refreshments in between.   There’s wine, crackers, cheese and cookies to enjoy, and our host curates a playlist to keep your energy flowing.  The evening lasts about 2 ½ hours, and participants leave with a collection of their new works… and maybe some new friends too. RiverArts is proud to be able to provide this unique opportunity right here in our Rivertowns, an opportunity which is often only accessible to art students or by traveling into New York City, with a significant investment of time and tuition.  Drink & Draw offers a perfect entry-level for the amateur artist, and we have seen beginners improve significantly as their skills develop in subsequent sessions and they draw on their experience and learn from others.   Model provided. Please bring your own art supplies and arrive on time. Must be over 18 to attend. Wine for those 21+ FOR MORE INFORMATION EMAIL: jriesman@riverarts.org #DrinkAndDraw Fill out my Wufoo form!
