Fine Arts

© FNCA 2016Over the years, there are and have been a surprising number of creative people at the Assembly. Most of them just can't help making art while they're at camp.

Spread throughout many of the buildings, there are paintings by various New Church artists who have attended the FNCA, from its earliest days to the present, with (what for us is) an extensive gallery of them in the Dole © Nancy F. Litle 2013Wing. Artists include: Anne Cary Bradley, Florence Whitehead, Benjamin Tucker Newman, Beryl Foster, Lois McCurdy, Carolyn Judson, Louise Dole Woofenden, Sally Dinsmore, Lynn Zimmerman, Anna Rich (pictured painting on the path down to the river at left), and a host of others.

We have also seen 3-D art, jewelry, professional-grade photography, plays and skits, and a wide assortment of other artistic endeavors by FNCA members at camp.
