It’s Not Too Soon—Start Planning Those Summer Activities | Arts Camp: The Art of Nature
Summer is just around the corner. Are you looking for something fun and educational for your child? Does your child like to paint, move, play, and explore? Check out Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts Arts Camp: The Art of Nature, a week-long, immersive arts camp that will bring out the science- and nature-loving artist in your child.
Designed for students entering grades 1-6 in the fall of 2017, this uniquely comprehensive arts camp allows students to experience dance, theatre, and visual art through an environmental scope. Children will find the rhythms of nature as they choreograph their own dance numbers, search for insects and creatures in Mitchell Park on daily hikes, become a bird or river during theatre performances, find their inner Van Gogh through landscape painting—and so much more! Campers will end the week with an art exhibit and performance to share what they’ve learned.
Parents have great things to say about the camp:
“The staff was excellent—I was very impressed with it all.”
“My daughter was singing all week and doing dance steps, too! Such a high-quality camp!”
“I was delighted with the projects and activities my child shared at the end of each day.”
And, so do the campers:
“Can we go all summer, please?” –Kelly
“It rocked!” –Maggie
Through fun, interactive, and engaging experiences, Arts Campers will:
• Develop an appreciation of the natural world through hands-on activities.
• Increase self-confidence through the arts.
• Develop creative problem-solving skills as they work with peers.
• Discover the wonderful sounds, patterns, colors, and rhythms of their own backyard.
