There's no better place to learn about art than at the site of Woodstock.

This introductory program dips into history and imaginative ways of thinking through arts activities and exploration of our grounds. Our young artists will explore music, visual arts, and theater while weaving together Bethel Woods themes of community, caring, and creativity. No previous experience required! We welcome artists of all abilities!

This program is currently at capacity. If you would like to be added to a session wait list, please email us.

About P.L.A.Y.

Bethel Woods’ Peace. Love. Arts. You. program invites children ages 5-15 to explore creative arts in a socially-distant way at the historic festival site of the 1969 Woodstock Music and Art Fair. The Conservatory and brand-new education building Atria will house four different youth programs, offering unique opportunities for skill development in a variety of ways, from art and music to movement and theater.

Led by Bethel Woods Teaching Artists and special guests, children will explore history, art, music, and the environment to ignite creative imagination. Program participants will enjoy plenty of outdoor time as well as access to The Museum collections and special exhibitions as part of the adventure.
