Art and Astronomy

You may not think that Art and Astronomy are as synonymous as Peanut Butter and Jelly, but people have been relying on the stars, planets and what they tell us for centuries. Something that important to civilization has made its way into art of all forms, from cave paintings to renaissance masterpieces. During this camp we will explore stars, planets, black holes and the endless landscape of outer space using art as a tool to discover and conceptualize.

9:00 AM – 3:00 PM, drop-off begins at 8:00 AM

The Alps

Stretching from France – through Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Austria and into Slovenia – the Alps are a small section of a great mountain chain that runs from North Africa through Europe and Asia. The Alps cover over 80,000 square miles and contain peaks towering over 15,000 feet (that’s the same as stacking up 43 of Durham’s tallest buildings!) The ecology of the Alps is extremely diverse because of the dramatic altitude and temperature changes, with a variety of animals and plant life, and the area has been inhabited by humans since the Paleolithic times – making it rich in cultural history.

Norse Mythology

People often correlate Greek history with mythology but many civilizations throughout history told stories of gods, goddesses and supernatural beings to help explain the unexplainable. The stories of Norse mythology, including elves, dwarfs and gods such as Ymir, Frigg, Odin, Heimdall and many others, were passed down through poetry from Scandinavia around the time of Vikings. Come learn about these heroic stories!
