little campers

for campers entering grades K-1

Little Campers are one-week camps designed to make our youngest campers feel right at home. Small classes, fabulous teachers, and arts activities based on a new creative theme each week allow for lots of exploration and imaginative play. Camps may include a combination of visual arts, music, movement, and drama, along with games and story time. Morning and afternoon sessions have the same weekly theme but do not repeat activites. Lunchtime supervision provided for all campers at no additional charge. Sessions are available 9:00 AM-Noon, 1:00-4:00 PM, or 9:00 AM-4:00 PM.

Week 1 (June 11-15) Patterns of the World

This week we’ll learn how to create and utilize patterns in art. We will explore ways to produce consistent patterns using symbols and stamps. Shapes, colors, and sizes can interact to create unique patterns.

Week 2 (June 18-22) Exploring Textured Art

We’ll combine sensory play with artistic concepts to create masterpieces using textured materials. We’ll experiment with salt, sand, paper and more to create art that is soft, spiky, squishy, or sticky!

Week 3 (June 25-29) Inspired by Sound

This week, we’re going to explore the many ways that art and sound interact. We’ll design objects that make sound and create works of art that are influenced by the sounds we hear and the way sounds make us feel.

Week 4 (July 2-6, no camp 7/4) Mixing & Matching Colors

Join us this week as we explore the colors of our world! We’ll learn about the color wheel, mixing colors, and creating beautiful color schemes. We’ll use a variety of materials to brighten up our summer! 4

Week 5 (July 9-13) 3D Art - Recycled Materials

We’ll make three-dimensional artwork out of recyclable and reusable materials, and talk about the importance of reuse in both art and everyday life. Use your imagination to make everyday items come to life!

Week 6 (July 16-20) Drawing & Painting with Shapes

Shapes are an important building block of art, and this week we’re going to learn all about them! We’ll focus on individual shapes and then use them to piece together larger objects, like people or animals.

Week 7 (July 23-27) Art of Nature

This week we’ll make art using nature as our inspiration. We will do projects based on plants, animals, and landscapes, and we’ll also incorporate parts of nature like leaves, rocks, or flowers into our art.

Week 8 (July 30-August 3) Big Art - Working Together

Together, campers will complete large scale projects that focus on teamwork and sharing. We’ll talk about past and present artists who work in large and public spaces, as well as artists who collaborate to create!

Week 9 (August 6-10) Famous Contemporary Artists

This week, we’ll travel through recent history to learn about contemporary visual and performing artists and their work, and then employ some of their best techniques to create our own masterpieces.

Week 10 (August 13-17) Water Based Media

Join us this week as we explore the ways we can use water to make art. The way that water moves, dries, and is absorbed by different materials will lead us to exciting and creative results!

Week 11 (August 20-24) Science of Art

This week, campers will discover the role of science in art - mixing colors and materials creates chemical reactions and beautiful results on our paper or canvas. We’ll also talk about how artists use science to determine the outcome of their work, whether in painting, architecture, pottery, or drawing.
