This camp will use the enchanted Tillinghast Place as the setting for young artists to explore folklore and use it to inform their own artmaking. What creatures dwell in the forest? How do they disguise themselves? Where do they sleep? Why are they impressive? Artists will explore a variety of forest myths that feature fantastic figures such as the Green Man, zombies, bewitched beasts, trolls, fairies and gnomes. They will bring these ethereal beings alive through drawing, painting, printmaking, mixed media, sculpture and installation.
Students must be age 6–8 to participate.
