After the House tour, the group will travel 2 miles around Napeague Harbor to the Barge. A history of the Barge, Victor D’Amico and his role as art educator with the emphasis on “motivations” will be explained.
Approximately 1 hour.
Afterward, there will be a break for lunch. Weather permitting you can walk off lunch on the Barge beach.
Recharged and inspired individuals can separate into smaller activity groups to make art. The Painting/Drawing, Collage and 3-D studios will have Barge instructors on hand to guide you through art activities. This will take place over approximately 2 hours. The day can end with a final critique.
