MORRIS-JUMEL MANSION

There's always something new at Manhattan's oldest house

Kids Printmaking Camp


Stretch your child’s creative muscles at Morris-Jumel's week-long printmaking workshop for kids. Educators will teach the elements of printmaking and give kids ample hands-on opportunities to make eye-catching, colorful art. And, as befits a camp being held at Manhattan's oldest house, the curriculum will mix art and historical instruction to give kids interactive lessons in colonial, local and Mansion history. For children ages 6-14. Enrollment costs a one-time fee of $10 per parent/chaperon. Advanced registration is required. Call 212-923-8008 or email education@morrisjumel.org to RSVP.
