Creating Like Calder

Alexander Calder was a master of the moving sculpture, the mobile. He also created paintings, prints, jewelry and monumental sculptures. This week is all about exploring and being inspired by Calder's artwork, as we make our own! Working and learning with many different mediums and techniques, we will construct moving mobiles, wooden toys, paintings and clay sculptures.**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 23 2018


Campers at this age love to broaden their use of materials, sustain projects over multiple days, and work creatively together. We encourage this age to view challenges as opportunities and “mistakes” as open doors, and to develop ideas and projects from their mix of rational and imaginative energy. More critical reflection is encouraged, while play still remains essential!

What does the week look like?
  • Each camp has one lead artist-teacher and one assistant, as well as one visiting artist- usually in clay- on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings
  • The day is split into morning and afternoon exploration units. Outside discovery is included throughout the day
  • Break for lunch and outdoor free play is between 12-1
  • The week concludes with an art show with family and friends
