Summer Art Camps for Kids 2013
Art & Science Camp - Earth, Air, Fire, and Water
Age 6 - 8 yrs
Full Day - 9am - 4pm - Full
July 2nd - 5th (4 day camp), $285 +HST
Kick off the summer with a whirlwind tour the age-old four elements!
This kids art camp will be divided between lots of fabulous activities including some serious messing around with science and art, including, of course, both fun and games!
Earth: we’re not just going to build volcanoes we’re going to save entire villages from pyroclastic flow. We’ll also be looking at Ontario’s 450 million year old fossils and creating some future fossils of our own, leaving messages for archeologists of the year 30,000,013.
Air: summer is a time to fly and soar in the sky. We’ll be experimenting with new kinds of planes and helicopters, all made from paper. We’ll be painting cloud portraits and – yes – making our own rainbows.
Fire: So, OK, we won’t be actually burning anything, but we will explore the nature of light with prisms and making sun prints of strange creatures. We’ll also find out about the amazing “green fire” that all plants use to make our planet livable. Bean sprouts included.
Water: need we say more???
All of our explorations aim to combine science and art in exciting and illuminating ways. Campers be looking at the works of artists who play with the four elements and reading stories that reveal the mystery of the natural world.
