Next Week!! Performing and Visual Arts Camp!

One of my really good friends who is the theatre teacher at the local high school where I teach art and I decided that this summer we would join the ranks of those people who offer summer camp. Both of us have taught camps before, but it's always scary when you venture out on your own. We were afraid it would be our 4 kids and us.. but with a few days left before camp starts we have 40 registered!! How exciting!!

Here is a sneak peak of what we have planned!!
The kids will get to SCREEN PRINT their own tshirts!! How cool is that!
Each group will be made up of the kids who are going to be in a certain skit/play/reader's theatre style piece. The kids will learn about acting, lights, set and costumes. They will make puppets and costume pieces that they will get to keep.  They will even paint a large mural (see pictures below) made up of 4 full flat sheets.

And if all that wasn't enough, they are going to make memory books!! How fun is that! :) We talked about it and decided that as parents we always wonder what the kids do at camps and so we decided to give parents the visual story of camp.

So, if you have kids who have completed kindergarten through 8th grade and they don't have anything to do June 4-7 in the afternoons, send me an email or give me a call if you live in the area! It will be $50 well spent.
