CREATIVELY BACK TO SCHOOL: Aug 6-10

Creativity is all about exploration! Children are naturally inquisitive and creative and given the opportunity to explore with guidance, can build upon their skills and transfer the creative process to everyday life and learning. We are offering 2 weeks of our ‘more traditional‘ Creativity Camp that includes the works… 2 art classes, theater class and dance class all interspersed with creative writing and some math, science and history. Each week concludes with a Camper Showcase on Friday at 4pm for parents and friends.

¨ In Art, we explore a variety of 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional art materials and techniques including: clay, painting, printing and sculpture to develop manual dexterity.

¨ In Theater, we explore character, storytelling and issues to develop skills in personal expression in everyday life, as well as on stage performance skills.

¨ In Dance, we explore personal movement, patterns and rhythm to develop coordination and personal expression through movement.

Campers should be registered one week in advance to ensure enrollment. This is not a daycare program. No drop-in’s. Teaching artists are professionals and have a weekly curriculum. Campers take their artwork home. Camper Certificates will be awarded weekly .

Each camp will conclude with a program for parents and friends on Friday at 4pm.
