Forget everything you think you know about summer camp, and step
into the exclusive world of Silver Springs Fine & Performing Arts
Camp for Girls. These young women have big aspirations:
Broadway. SoHo Galleries. Julliard. They've got
more to do with their precious time than worry about hanging your panties on
the flagpole. And their idea of "roughing it" is setting the AC in their cabins
Fifteen-year-old Indigo Hamlisch is a teenage art prodigy
looking forward to her last summer at Silver Springs. At least, she was looking
forward to it, until the second she stepped on the bus and came face to face
with her shampoo-commercial model/actress BFF, Lucy. Growing up, Indigo and Lucy
were artists taking on the world side-by-side, but this summer, Lucy's a CIT,
and that means everything is different. Lucy is old enough now to hang out with
the counselors, including Indigo's longtime, scandalous and unrequited crush, paint-splattered
instructor Marc Estep. But it's not like anything is going to happen between
them. Lucy would never do that her best friend... right?
Art Girls Are Easy is a scathing comedy of errors -- part Jane Austen, part Gossip Girl, part Wet Hot
American Summer -- all filtered through the wry, satirical eye of Indigo
Hamlisch, a girl who's been there, done that, and looking for a little
