Either way, the Dutchess Arts Camp@Mill Street Loft offers something for everyone. Their full-day, weekly summer camps for ages 4 – 14, offer a smorgas- bord of opportunities in the visual and performing arts – with plenty of time for outdoor fun and making friends. Founder Carole Wolf explains, "The camp philosophy is about building self-esteem while learning through the arts." "Here, children experi- ence art in action. Kids discover, create, explore and have fun, whether they want to throw a pot, paint a portrait, shoot fi lm, or be a clown or dancer." For example, in one session called Take a Bite Out of Art week, campers create artistic masterpieces inspired by the art of eating. 2014 Camps run weekly from July 7th through August 8th. For teens and tweens, the Art Institute @ Mill Street Loft offers two-week summer intensives on the campus of Vassar College in Pough- keepsie from June 30th to August 1st. Two 2-week sessions, with a 2 week residential option available for the second session. Students concentrate on digital and traditional photog- raphy or the visual arts, and work in a variety of media including charcoal, pastel, wa- tercolor and acrylic. "This is a pre-college portfolio develop- ment program for motivated students who are moving towards a career in the visual arts," explains Wolf. Whether they choose a combination of drawing, painting, sculpture or photography, students begin to develop an impressive art portfolio for college admissions. The Art Institute @Mill Street Loft is an impressive program. $30 million dollars in merit-based scholarships to leading colleges, universities and art schools have been offered to their students.
