Topophilia: Community Camp :: 7-10Y :: July 31- Aug 4

Regular price $160.00

July 31-Aug 4 // 2-5P // 7-10Y // $160 

How do you get to know a place? What senses help you understand where you are? What do you notice? In this camp we will focus on what it is that surrounds us and investigate loving where we are. Like wee detectives, we will learn about slowing down and noticing details while also learning about design, composition, and the natural world. Creativity will be sparked! (Hope likes to call this Slowing Down Sparks!)

By collecting, observing, and participating in different art-making techniques, we will create field guide/journals throughout the week, creatively mapping and documenting different experiences that incorporate nature, storytelling, sketching, drawing, performance, and silent reflection. 

Good pencils and a sketchbook are provided. We will also have one day incorporating a show and tell. Several projects occur outdoors on our sidewalk so please keep sunscreen in mind. 

We will choose one piece of artwork to display in an August art exhibition at the Grit and/or at TREEHOUSE!
