LF4 Art & Acting in the Forest

Enjoy outstanding arts education with instructors from the FAC’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, and the Taylor Memorial Chapel, built in 1929, was designed by Fine Arts Center’s architect John Gaw Meem.

Stretch your imagination! Experience a variety of artistic styles and techniques, including painting, printmaking and collage, while exploring elements of composition and design. Explore 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 – bring your swimsuit, towel and sunscreen. Each child should bring a lunch and snack, and should be prepared for a variety of activities and weather. No open-toe shoes or sandals. Students may arrive after 8:50 a.m.

***La Foret is a licensed childcare premises and requires several forms for your child’s protection(Camp Health Form & Certificate of Immunization). Some require a doctor’s signature. All of these forms must be filled-out and turned-in before the first day of camp. Your child cannot participate until these are received.
