Fairies, Trolls, and Goblins!

Come explore the IS183 Enchanted Realm through drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, story and imagination! We'll collect items in the woods, build a habitat with characters, and create favorite fairy creatures using our human shapes as inspiration. Our projects might be tiny, table-top, or life-size, but all will celebrate techniques like handbuilding and cartooning, and will encourage lots of brainstorming as we invent characters and develop stories!**Early Drop-Off and Late Pick-Up are available to extend the day from 8:30AM to 4:30PM. $35/week for either morning or afternoon, $65/week for both.

First Lesson
Mon, Jul 2 2018

Camps for 6 and 7 year olds introduce projects, methods and themes in a larger real-world context and take advantage of increased fine-motor skills. We celebrate more intentional marks and the ability to write while encouraging lively imaginations! Collaborations, more multi-step projects, and of course lots of outdoor experiences are highlights of the week.
  • Campers work collaboratively and individually with the guidance of a lead artist and assistant. A visiting artist creates in clay with the campers on Tuesday afternoon
  • We start with a morning meeting and then get busy with hands-on exploration, incorporating stories, outside discovery and playtime throughout the day
  • Break for lunch and outdoor play between 12-1
  • The week concludes with an art show with family and friends
