Olana Panorama 2022: Summer Youth Program

Olana’s Week-Long Summer Youth Program

This year, The Olana Partnership will hold its 13th annual Panorama Summer Youth Program for four weeks starting in July through early August 2022 at Olana State Historic Site. Certified teachers, professionals, and museum educators will deliver thematic programs each week. This year, instructors developed hands-on educational activities for children ages 7-11 that encourage creative play and discovery at Olana. We ask that families register for a maximum of two weeks. Registration will close on or before June 15, 2022.

 

Week 1: Exploring Nature
July 11 to July 15

Educators from the Taconic Outdoor Education Center will guide students through Olana’s  250-acre-artist-designed landscape to learn about the fauna and flora that inhabit the site. Students will use their newfound environmental knowledge to explore how artists like Frederic Church, relate to the natural world.

Week 2: Art Expeditions–Sold Out. 
July 18 to July 22

Students will learn about Frederic Church’s global explorations and how they can use their environment as a source of inspiration for artmaking. Led by expert teaching artists, students will learn more about how travel and place can inspire artists of different backgrounds.

Week 3: Exploring Architecture–Sold Out.

Led by The Olana Partnership educators, students will take a closer look at Church’s design for Olana’s Main House. Students will also learn how architecture and design come into play for creatures of all shapes and sizes, finally using their skills to craft their own architectural vision.
