A note to our Glen Ridge Summer Arts families, Summer 2021 Update:

After a hugely successful Summer 2020 season, we are excited to announce plans for our 2021 GR Summer Arts Academy season. New this summer… ECO-SCIENCE!

We will be returning to the historic Freeman Gardens for a three-week camp schedule, highlighting the natural beauty of the garden through painting, drawing, sculpture and crafts. In our new science component, students will learn more about their natural surroundings, as seen through the flora and fauna of Freeman Gardens. In addition, theatre and music classes will be offered in the same, open-air environment. Classes will also be offered in a virtual format for those not ready to return to in-person instruction.

Our goal is to provide the highest level of artistic instruction in Music, Theatre and Visual art through highly interactive small group or one-on-one instruction culminating in outdoor, socially distant performances, and gallery showings.

Please join us this summer to Make Art Together.

“Our son had a great time. He took a sketching class and the comics class. He learnt new skills and techniques, and really enjoyed taking classes with his friends.”

We are so excited this program is back this year! Our daughter enjoys the art and music workshops and learns so much each year. The program is well organized and well run, and having it at Freeman Gardens is an added bonus. The beauty and serenity of the gardens is very conducive to artistic development and inspiration. We highly recommend this program.
