Curious Jane Day Camp Curious Jane Day Camp is a high-energy program for rising 2nd–6th grade girls. We offer multiple weekly sessions that revolve around creative explorations in design, engineering, and science. All themes are offered all weeks, and girls choose their favorite theme each week! The program is hands-on and project-based. Girls learn and have fun through DOING. They are encouraged to be active, look at things in new ways and—above all—experiment! We also spend plenty of time outside and work on a variety of projects as a group, so that girls in different themes can get to know each other. Our instructors are endlessly enthusiastic about their topics and very supportive of the girls’ ideas and work. Themes: Toy Design • Story Arts • Lab Science • Robotics • Zine Scene • Building • DIY Workshop We are a close-knit group passionate about genderaffirming opportunities and creative, project-based our guidance, the girls set the tone, and each group creates its own magic!

tion of working with studio materials and working with digital media in the same week. The painting component will use cardboard and other materials to make a painting that is three-dimensional. Campers will be exposed to the basics of Photoshop so that they can work on an independent project. No drawing, painting, or Photoshop experience is necessary, but if you do have experience, it will allow you to work at a more advanced level. Claymation Animation Dates: June 25 – June 29 This is a rollicking good time because the combination of working in clay, building and painting scenery, and then animating your story on the computer in iStop Motion is just so much fun. Also, we use GarageBand to make music and record the voices for the characters, so the week is full of fun. At the end, we post our animations on YouTube so everyone everywhere can enjoy them. Clay Sculpture Dates: July 9 – July 13 In this class we will be building sculpture using two different kinds of clay, cardboard, and paint. For environments (anything from castles to caves), we will use a kind of clay that hardens and can be painted, while for people, animals, monsters, etc., we will use another kind of colored clay that allows the user to get a lot of detail. When using the clays together, we can build very elaborate scenes. Computer Animation Dates: July 16 – July 20 We will be using a sophisticated but easy-to-use animation program to develop a short story line, create a cartoon character, and then animate that character or characters with backgrounds you make yourself. Then you will be able to add your own music (made in GarageBand) and create voices for each of your characters. Learning the program will be simple even for kids who have never done any animation or computer drawing before. The main goal is to have fun!
