2015 Summer Camp Activities & Schedule

Session I 2015 June Camps (minimum of two weeks enrollment):  All sessions include morning French classes, performing arts, singing, and indoor and outdoor games, combined with afternoon  art projects such as painting, drawing, sculpting, and crafts:

Week 1: Painting

Week 2: Drawing

Week 3: Sculpting

Week 4: Crafts

Our French Art classes are a classic example of how, if you give kids a little direction, a little encouragement, and a few ideas, their creative energy will explode off the page and light up the room! Each time, we look at a different artist or style of art. It may be Georgia

O’Keeffe, Henry Matisse, Vincent Van Gogh, or cubism, abstraction, aboriginal art, or something they particularly want to learn about (one student was fascinated by Escher, another only wanted to paint Mark Rothko). We look at what elements are important in the work, and then they try it themselves. We use tempera paint, acrylic paint, pen and ink, paper, and canvas. In this delightful camp, children will also develop their drawing skills by starting with the basic line. From there, we will guide campers through the concepts of shape, form, shading, and color and oversee playful drawing exercises designed to encourage young campers to take risks and refine existing skills. The results are generally pretty wonderful, but we believe, and we teach, that the process is as important as the product! Sprinkle in a few crafts, and you have a fun Painting, Drawing, Sculpting and Crafts classes.
