Summer Camps for Tweens
School’s out and you’re probably either finalizing your kids summer plans or realizing that you’ve done nothing to keep them occupied and are approaching a full-blown panic. If your kids are older like mine, it gets to be a real challenge to find camps that they’ll enjoy and be willing to go to without breaking the bank. For us, it’s always at least one or two weeks at Girl Scout camp but the rest of the summer?? I’m usually left piecing things together and hoping that their brains don’t whither away from too much Minecraft or from streaming too much Netflix.
SECCA Summer Art Workshop: Art Through Improv
One of my favorite places locally has a great camp coming up in July for middle-school aged kids and is definitely worth checking out and getting registered for!
Join SECCA and The Engaging Educator (led by Jen Oleniczak who I haven’t gotten to meet in person yet but absolutely cannot wait to fix that!!) this summer for a new, five-day art making and improv workshop.
Led by SECCA educators and The Engaging Educator, each day includes gallery exploration and hands-on workshops where students will interpret and create works of art using improvisational comedy.
Students ages 11-14 will experiment with various mediums and methods, including painting, sculpture, collage and digital media in individual and collaborative projects. At the end of the week, parents and family will be invited to a student curated exhibition and improv performance.
Fee: $200, which includes all art materials, snacks, photo and video documentation of the program.
July 11 – 15, 2016 / 9:00am – 3pm each day
