La Foret – Art and Acting in the Forest

Enjoy an outstanding arts education with instructors from the Fine Art Center’s Bemis School of Art set in the lush forest at the 400-acre La Foret Conference and Retreat Center. The FAC’s partnership with La Foret has a long history. Alice Bemis Taylor, one of the three benefactresses of the Fine Arts Center, had her summer home at La Foret. The Taylor Memorial Chapel, built in 1929, was designed by the Fine Art Center’s architect, John Gaw Meem.

Stretch your imagination! Experience a variety of artistic styles and techniques, including painting, printmaking, and mixed-media art while exploring elements of composition and design. Cultivate your acting skills, voice, movement, and characterization with theatre games, mime, and improvisation. Art and acting will come together on Fridays with a special showcase performance and art exhibit for friends and family.

La Foret staff will provide swimming in the afternoon, so bring your swimsuit, towel, and sunscreen. Each student should bring lunches and snacks, as well as be prepared for a variety of activities and weather. No open-toed shoes or sandals. Students may arrive after 8:50 a.m.

La Foret is a licensed childcare organization and requires several forms for your child’s protection (Camp Health Form and Certificate of Immunization). Some require a doctor’s signature. All the forms must be completed and submitted prior to the first day of camp. Your child cannot participate until the paperwork is received. Here are the forms:
