 Summer SmARTs

In excellent art programs for children and teens, Summer SmARTs combines interactive discussion in the galleries with art-making projects in various media. This summer, the beautiful André Biéler Studio is home base for a one-week course for teens, and three one-week art day camps for 8–12 year-olds.

Three exhibitions focused on Kingston provide the themes for SummerSmARTs 2016: Dig: Chaka Chikodzi, Ben Darrah, Pat McDermott, Joan Scaglione, Su Sheedy, Sharon Thompson; The Inspired “Amateur”: Kingston Women Artists 1890s to 1920s; and Art Scenes Kingston. Creating textured paintings and sculptural assemblages and going on outdoor excursions are just part of what awaits Summer SmARTs participants.
