Teen Art Camp - led by Joya Mutti
Are you looking for a fun, creative outlet this summer to help you unplug, find inspiration, and make art that means something to you? Imagine this: making art in a beautiful old barn in the countryside, listening to music and working alongside other teen artists. Come experiment with new painting methods, materials and techniques, or bring your own project on which to work. Develop your art portfolio for college or just feed your need for creativity and getting your hands dirty. There’s probably nothing quite like this out there, so grab a friend or two and join us for an amazing week!
For students with some art experience, entering grades 10-12

Farm experience: Sheep Shearing
Do you love knitting or just have a favorite wool sweater? Ever wonder about the journey from farm animal to boutique? This guided experience will show you the first steps in the process of turning fleece into wool.
Join Kevin Ford, the top hand shearer in the United States and 7th in the world, as he nimbly works is magic at neighboring Hythe Farm. Kevin has been honing his craft for many years and you will marvel at his prowess.
The ewes that you've been watching birth and raise these sweet little lambs are desperately in need of a hair cut (much like me!) We will weigh, bag, and tag the fleece before relocating it to the barn at the Phineas Wright House for skirting and prepping to be spun. Bring your lunch! You'll be here awhile.
