Summer Arts at Brooklyn Friends

Summer Arts at Brooklyn Friends School offers a diverse and exciting art experience for children who will be entering grades three through seven in September 2018. Taught by working and exhibiting New York City artists, instructors are selected for their artistic accomplishments, as well as their experience working with children. Under the care and guidance of our staff, children explore their creativity and artistic abilities through an enriched interdisciplinary program. In addition to participating in all of the exciting studio art classes being offered in each session, children go on field trips to NYC’s world-class arts and cultural institutions, including outings to major museums, special exhibitions, and art studios of professional artists. They also enjoy recreational swimming two times a week at the Marriott Hotel pool, they play in two fully equipped gyms and on the rooftop playground at BFS, and have ample opportunities for free play and organized games.
