Art in the Loft Excursions: Art on the Island Summer Camp
As part of our Art in the Loft Excursions, our Art on the Island Summer Camp is Back!
We are extending our classroom out into the community to enrich student experiences, as we explore various artistic modalities from natural parks to brick & mortar... and you are invited!
As long as there has been art, artists have been inspired by nature. A combination that allows connection and inspiration.
Join us for our 2nd annual summer camp series...
Art on the Island!
(Sportsman's Island Park)
Where students are encouraged to explore endless forms of inspiration as we hike the trails of sportsman's Island. Students will apply our gathered inspiration in multiple hands on, nature inspired art projects and camp themed snacks.
On the agenda:
- Daily Hiking, exploration, sightseeing and creative play
- Weaving and beading with nature
- Gratitude Game
- Solar Paper Printmaking
- Clay Gnome Homes and Fairy Houses
- Painting with Nature
- Fabric Printmaking and Handmade Puppets
Students will also gain a "taste" of the culinary arts by assembling their own snacks each day. Kicking things off with a s'mores style trail mix.
So grab a comfy pair of hiking shoes, your water bottle, sunscreen, bug spray or hat and join us as we explore and implement the beauty that surrounds us!
*Students will meet at the island park entrance where they will be checked in prior to camp and use the facilities (if needed) before entering on the island. Guardians are encouraged to join in on the fun, but are not required as we are also staffed to accommodate our groups needs and safety.
**In the event of a poor weather forecast, students will be notified and festivities will be relocated back into our classroom at Art in the Loft; where we would celebrate all things nature by bringing the outdoors in.
