Last day of Camp

AUGUST 21, 2008
This is the last day of the SPACE Summer Arts Camp. It's been a rich experience, even thrilling at times, as we have seen so many children leaning new skills, exploring their creativity and making new friends. This week, kids worked with teacher Joan Swayze at discovering new ways to draw. They used a variety of materials (including spaghetti!) to expand their definition of line and shape and space. Teacher Kat Schroeder worked with the youngest members of the camp on a fun skit involving a movie producer and a giant carrot! The children made scenery, costumes and props for the skit, and also created their own clay creatures and fabric dolls.

The acting/filmmaking class, filled with middle school children, were introduced to acting and filmmaking techniques. They got to perform roles from famous movies like Napoleon Dynamite, the Devil Wears Prada, and Legally Blonde, then they took turns directing and shooting the scenes. We look forward to seeing the edited versions of the scenes today. What a fun and active week - we will report more tomorrow about the experiences of the camp's final day.
