Virtual GreenHill’s Summer Camps Now Live from the Studios

Greensboro, NC. ....GreenHill Center for North Carolina Art unveiled summer camps that bring weekly theme-based activities into children’s homes. Beginning June 22nd, daily live experiences are offered for pre-k through 6th-grade levels, with camps such as "Dinos and Dragons", "Cafe Monet" or "Picasso's Paint Party" to choose from.

“After 10 weeks of rich online programming through Virtual GreenHill, we’re thrilled to transition to daily, live art-making from our vibrant studios,” explained Barbara Richter, Executive Director of GreenHill. “We’re excited to bring camps to our families, wherever they may be! The option to ship artboxes with all the materials needed, eliminates geographic boundaries, which is a game-changer.”

Jaymie Meyer, GreenHill’s Director of Education added: “When you sign up for our virtual art experiences, you’ll receive an entire theme-based curriculum and the magic of art-making at home. Customized artboxes make the experience easily accessible. The daily live format enables kids to interact with their fellow campers as they engage in fun and enriching activities.”

GreenHill shared that 1st - 6th grade campers can expect:

• Live, online instruction, Monday-Friday, from 9-10:30am and an additional 30 minutes of art games and other creative experiences

• Recorded sessions available immediately after each class for campers who miss or prefer to create at their own pace

• An email with a full set of detailed instructions and materials for every project in pdf format

• Password-protected camp website access with fresh updates daily, additional resources, and content to work on outside of class

Preschool-kindergarten campers can expect:

• Live, online experience from 10:00-10:45am including story time, movement and song, and an art project all based on the story time book

• Recorded sessions available immediately after each class so that each child can create art at his or her own pace

• An email with a full set of detailed instructions and materials for every project in pdf format

• Password-protected camp website access with fresh content daily, additional resources, and exercises and activities to work on outside of class

The Virtual Camp weekly fee is $50 per camp for GreenHill members and $65 for non-members. Artboxes containing all of the supplies, instructions and hand-outs ready to go for each day of camp may be purchased for an additional fee of $35 per camp.

Artboxes will be available for pickup 12 - 4 pm on the Friday before camp begins. GreenHill is also offering the convenience of shipping artboxes to homes anywhere in the continental US for an additional $22. Artbox orders must be placed 10 business days prior to the respective camp's start date.

Details on all the weekly camps and registration are at greenhillnc.org.
