Brooklyn Heights

Le Meraviglie Art Camp | Brooklyn Heights

Program: Calling all aspiring artists! Piera Bonerba, an artist and longtime art educator (born and raised in Puglia, Italy), is offering week-long arts immersion programs during school holidays in her beautiful, light-filled Brooklyn Heights studio. Children attending Le Meraviglie (in English “the Wonders”) will find themselves in a world where ‘art’ becomes a lively process of engagement that is reflective, creative, deliberate, and fun. Piera has designed a program that stimulates and engages the senses through drawing, painting, collage, music, dance, and cooking.  Every day and in every way she invites young artists to wonder. Inspired by what Reggio Emilia founder Loris Malaguzzi described as the hundred languages, the themes at Le Meraviglie change every week as children are exposed to the work of Picasso, Matisse, Rothko, Pollock, and others. They’ll spend the day learning to experiment with printmaking, sculpting, and textile arts, along with painting, drawing, and collage.  We will take field trips to the park, run through the sprinklers, play games, and make more art outdoors.

Ages: 5 to 11

Camp Hours: 9am to 4pm (early arrival and extended day is available for a fee).

Costs: $210/day (10% sibling discount)
