Two VAE Summer Camps at the Bennington Museum

Outdoor Sculpture Camp and Make Art, Make Noise!

VAE and the Bennington Museum have combined forces to bring some of VAE style camps to the beautiful outdoor surroundings at the Bennington Museum. The VAE Art Bus will be camp headquarters as we make full use of nearby Hadwen Woods and the George Aiken Wildflower Trail. Though we’ll be spending most of our time outside, we’ll also integrate Museum exhibitions into our camp week. With the Art Bus, a large pavillion and access to the Museum, we’ll be fully prepared for any weather.

As always, we’re hosting our popular camps at the VAE studio in North Bennington.
