Dear Friends and Neighbors,
The history of Greenwich House Music School stretches back to 1905, when we were founded in the settlement tradition with a mission to provide arts and cultural programs to help our community expand experiences and help individuals lead more fulfilling lives. The goal at GHMS is to teach students the beauty and transformative power of music, art and dance and make them lifelong lovers of the arts. GHMS serves the community through diverse programs, including private and group instruction in piano, violin, cello, viola, woodwinds, brass, guitar, drums, harp and voice, as well as early childhood programs in dance, visual arts and movement. The school is proud to offer over $50,000 each year in financial aid for students based on merit and need.

With a long history of providing arts programming to New Yorkers, Summer Arts Camp at Greenwich House provides young people, ages 7-14, access to different artistic movements to help them develop their own visual voice. Students work on collaborative and individual projects in disciplines such as architecture, painting and drawing, cartoon art, ceramics, printmaking and animation. All levels are welcome; the only requirement is an interest in the arts! Throughout camp, weather permitting, campers also take field trips to movie theaters, museums, galleries, parks and neighborhood attractions, including a weekly pool trip. Register for Summer Arts Camp at greenwichhouse.org/afterschool.
Camp Dates: July 5 – August 26, 2016
Our eldest group of campers, aged 13 and 14, can work more independently from the younger campers, engage in in-depth art projects, and participate in counselor training workshops to learn how to supervise young campers. The CIT program requires maturity, encourages independence and provides an enviornment for growth and selfdiscovery. As space is limited, interested teens are required to apply for this program.

â€œGreenwich House Pottery has been a big part of my life since making the decision to work in clay.â€? -Elaine Tian
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Greenwich House Pottery is the oldest non-profit studio in the country dedicated to the inquiry and advancement of the ceramic arts. An internationally recognized center that offers a diverse range of classes, exhibitions, residencies, lectures, master workshops and community outreach, the Potteryâ€™s goal is to meet the needs of newcomers, amateurs and professional artists alike. Founded in 1909, its unique history encompasses the evolution of American Ceramics. With roots as a craft program in a Greenwich Village settlement house, the Pottery quickly became a hub of the post-war studio crafts movement and is today a vital center for art and inquiry.
