We can’t believe it’s here: the LAST day of Create Camps! Thank you to our WONDERFUL families and campers. Our staff had so much fun this summer, learned lots and lots, and truly enjoyed spending time with your campers. We hope to see you again next year!
MINI MAKERS (Kindergarten)
Today Minis visited the vault to learn from a painting by Jonathan Lasker. They talked about the painting’s layered colors, shapes, and gestural movements used by the artist. Back in the studio Mini’s created their own layered scribble collages.
EXPLORE: Art & Nature (1st-2nd)
Explorers went on a campus walk to gather leaves and sticks in interesting shapes and sizes. These found materials were laid on tote bags painted with light sensitive ink. They spent the afternoon in the sun printing shapes on top. Campers also learned about Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty and imagined their own spiral rock patterns.
MOLD I: Ceramics & Clay (3rd-4th)
This morning Mini Molder’s built platforms for their ceramics castles, complete with moats and bridges. They also built a set to install their underwater sea sculptures. This afternoon campers talked about all the projects they sculpted over the past two weeks, critiquing what they liked, what they didn’t like, what was difficult, and how they overcame those challenges.
MOLD II: Ceramics & Clay (5th-6th)
Mold II assembled their fired ceramic pieces, including their letter banners and floating face mobiles. In the afternoon they continued working with sculpy to build puppets, animals, snacks, and beads.
DESIGN: Spaces & Places (7th-9th, teen workshop)
Designers visited the beautiful Japanese gardens, where they spent the morning sketching plants and structures in the garden. This afternoon they turned their sketches into hanging garden models, translating 2D sketches into 3D forms, and talked about kinetic artwork.
