Creative Arts Camp 2021 is designed especially for summer 2021, to encourage social-emotional learning through the arts after a year of hibernation. Dark and mysterious pieces are welcome alongside the bright and bold ones. Guided by our two week-long themes, activities will enable each individual camper to contribute their unique gifts of artistic expression in a safe and creative environment.
Three age-based cohorts (grades 1-2; 3-4; and 5-6) rotate through three arts activity periods, learning skills and creating musical, dance, and visual art pieces. A healthy dose of indoor and outdoor games, breaks, and lunchtime provides plenty of fun and creates strong friendships.
Music: Singing, recorder playing, music reading, trying orchestral instruments, and more.
Dance and Creative Movement: Basic dance steps and styles; explorations of space, time, shape, and weight; and solo, partner, and group creations.
Visual Arts: Drawing, painting, and sculpting your own creations, while learning about famous artists throughout history.
