Programs for children are designed to engage their sense of discovery
through first-hand experiences with art and history. Programs include our
afterschool programs, summer camp, vacation workshops and hands-on
April Vacation Workshops
The Historical Society is once again offering fun and imaginative art and
history workshops for kids during the upcoming public school vacation week.
This time around, projects will be based on themes from our exhibition
Enjoying the Country Life: Greenwich’s Great Estates.
Dream House: Greenwich became the
ideal place to build during the Gilded Age. It still is. Kids will construct
their very own dream houses out of cardboard boxes. Tuesday, April
East Meets West: Japanese Art
techniques significantly influenced the work of the Cos Cob art colony. Kids
will learn about Suni ink painting and compare the technique to traditional
Western watercolors by creating their own works of art in each style.

High Flyers: Enjoy an activity
that’s synonymous with spring! Make and fly custom designed kites.
