Wassaic X Webutuck
The Wassaic X Webutuck school year partnership program brings Wassaic Project Education Fellows into the art classes at Webutuck Public High School in Amenia, NY. Education Fellows share their work with the students and lead hands-on projects that explore central themes in contemporary art. Through Wassaic X Webutuck students explore critical thinking through creative problem solving, gain greater understanding of contemporary art practices, and learn about career possibilities in the arts. 2013-2014 projects include coutermapping, video installation, and performance art.
This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by Arts Mid-Hudson.
NORTH EAST COMMUNITY CENTER JUNIOR HIGH CLUBS
The Wassaic Project partners with the North East Community Center Junior High Clubs, a program that offers free after-school clubs for 7-8th grade students at Eugene Brooks Intermediary School. Recent Wassaic Project Clubs have included Print Club at the Wassaic Project Print Shop and Installation Club in Maxon Mills.

Guided visits to the Wassaic Project are available for K-12 and college-level groups. Field trip groups will tour the Project’s historic buildings, which include a converted grain elevator turned exhibition space and an auction barn turned studio and workshop, and visit the studios of resident artists. K-12 groups may also sign up for an extended visit, which will include a hands-on project.
Please contact Education Director Hallie Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a field trip visit.
