“We are born extremely creative and artistic, and formal education and life structure inhibit our creativity,” says Executive Director, Lauren Brandt Schloss. “We plan to keep fanning the fire of creativity.”
Usdan offers morning and afternoon bus pick-up and drop-off for students in Nassau and Suffolk counties, southern Westchester, Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn. Students usually arrive at 9:30am and leave at 3:30pm. There is an after-care options where students can be picked up by their parents before 6pm.
Usdan Summer Camp for the Arts is a 50-year-old day arts camp designed for students in preschool through 12th grade. It offers courses in both arts and non-arts disciplines, where students go to take risks and lose themselves in their art form. Founding Trustee Suzanne Usdan would say, “Usdan is a place where you lose yourself for a summer and find yourself for a lifetime.”
