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 to 'low.' 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 inspiration.
