On Tuesday, we went to Through this Lens Gallery for a great field trip!

Yesterday, we walked to the Durham Farmer’s Market and kids bought lots of fun treats, including peach ice cream and lots of flowers!

We also have lots of fun in Afternoon Adventures! (even when we lose in Connect Four!)

We are looking forward to a great rest of the week!

Welcome Back!

We are excited as we are starting our first Mini Camp and Dance Intensive today! Our theme this week is Pop Art, inspired by amazing artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.

The campers started off their day by learning about what Pop Art is and what makes it so special! Pop art is an art form that focuses on popular culture and mass media and usually has lots of bright colors and fun references. One of the most famous pop artists is Andy Warhol and he was one of the leading figures in the visual arts movement!

As you can tell, this week of camp will be very interesting for our kids and hopefully they will learn a lot about this cool art form! We are looking forward to a great rest of the week and a great summer!

The Last Week of Summer Camp

This last week has been a lot of fun as we create.  We have been making doughnut collages, watercolor paintings and writing jokes. We also got to dance with Ms. Allison using some fun and colorful ribbons.

The Dance Intensive campers have also been hard at work preparing for tomorrow’s show.

A busy day at Mini Camp

We are having a great day! The Dance Intensive campers are getting ready for their show…

And our Mini Campers are creating board games around Durham landmarks!

The campers are also making drums today, which they will use to create some music later in the week. Not to mention all the other fun activities they are doing today, including a field trip to the Carolina theater for our Afternoon Adventurers.

Visual!

Session D has been great so far! Our visual campers are exploring different ways to make art with found objects! They have been making some beautiful embroidery projects.
