Georges River Land Trust is thrilled to launch Langlais Leaps, a summer art camp at the Langlais Sculpture Preserve in Cushing for kids 8-12 years of age. In the spirit of Bernard Langlais, children will become artists and naturalists while exploring the glorious setting of the preserve. Click here for a brochure.
Each week children will discover new connections between art and nature, while having fun with literature and journals. Campers’ collaborative projects will become part of the permanent art at the Langlais Sculpture Preserve. There are six week-long art camps to choose from. Each camp week costs $160 and scholarships are available – click here to download an application.
