2019 Art Day at The Watermill Center

Springs School at The Watermill Center : a laboratory for the arts and humanities, Robert Wilson, Artistic Director
A creative collaboration with The Anna Mirabai Lytton Foundation

Seventy students rotated among a panoply of art workshops presented by a team of creative professionals and educators. The unique and inspiring Watermill Center – a laboratory of performance, galleries and grounds – was the perfect creative venue for the 6th Graders. Students took photographs, wrote poems, sketched in nature, shot video, wrote music, made sculptures, wove friendship bracelets and performed Maori poi dances. Then they had lunch!
