Weir Farm National Historic Site
Capture the Connecticut countryside during one of the “Take Part in Art” sessions at Weir Farm National Historic Site in Wilton. This was once the home of American Impressionist Julian Alden Weir and is now a 60-acre park that includes the Weir House, two art studios, barns, gardens and Weir Pond. “Take Part in Art” begins in April with colored pencils and pastels, with watercolors added in May, and then runs until early fall. On some days, a professional artist is on hand to provide instruction and encouragement.
