Summer Camp – Ages 6-12*
9 am to 12 noon
Sculpture, drawing, painting, and ceramics are the focus of the morning art activities, giving children an opportunity to imaginatively and expressively explore these media while simultaneously developing skills.
Campers enjoy lunch together from 12-12:30 pm in our studio spaces. Groups are paired by age and are encouraged to interact with one another.
Opportunities for new friendships are fostered in a warm and creative environment. Children should bring cold lunches, as there is no access to microwaves or kitchens.
1 to 4 pm
The afternoon session offers a fun and exciting workshop atmosphere in which to explore a specific art form that changes each week, such as collage, print-making, book arts, sculpture, and digital media. Experimentation, creativity, and self-expression are encouraged, as well as skill development and an understanding of basic artistic concepts. Part of the afternoon will include physical activities (i.e. games at the park; weekly yoga; and a weekly swim, weather permitting).
4:15 to 6 pm – Extended hours
You can also register your child for a late pick-up service until 6 pm. Activities include: creating bracelets, drawing, beading, and other quiet games.
This year’s theme is: MOVEMENT IN ART
Let’s delve into what movement can mean in visual art. This summer, explore how artistic movements are initiated, actions artists can take to become catalysts of change, and how creative engagement can foster a sense of community. Movement will be examined in conceptual and physical ways. Campers will be immersed in these creative investigations and equipped with various media to express their thoughts and inspirations about society, environment, and community.
