This exciting summer camp is a fun-filled opportunity for children aged 6 to 11 to immerse themselves in the wonders of the living earth!
The full-day program uses art experiences to explore aspects of ecology allowing young people to view nature through the creative lens of art.
The art program encourages self-expression and inspires young artists to wander through the playful connections between art and the environment.
Young campers will learn about nature while designing exciting art projects such as geometric mandalas depicting a wetlands habitat, playing with themes of the sun, wind and water in colourful silk screen prints, and the creation of 3-D whirligigs while exploring pollination.
Students will use water-based inks, as well as recycled and found materials in our fun, creative and collaborative atmosphere. A guest speaker from a national environmental non-profit organization will visit the camp each week to engage the children in the wonders of nature.
