Dates: June 17- June 21
Location: A Simpler Place Farm & Market
We are super excited for the fantastic week we have planned for Summer Camp 2019.
Painted Leaf Camps are one of a kind!
come join us for a summer filled with art, outdoors & farm life
Art Camp at the Farm is inspired by creativity & farm life. We will be exploring & combining art with nature to fine tune our artistic skills and discover different mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture & collage. Campers will learn and practice basic art skills as well as explore more advanced and experimental techniques. We will explore the work of well-known artists, but most importantly, kids will be able and encouraged to explore their own style. Art Camp is magical from beginning to end!
You can sign up for one day, or receive a 20% cost savings, when you sign up for the entire week. Each day has a unique theme!
Monday 6/17 - Movement & Art
Campers will explore how movement & music affects the creation of art. We will be using traditional and nontraditional techniques to explore & create throughout the day.
Tuesday 6/18 - Animal Party
Campers will learn about and incorporate animals into their art work. We will be exploring their textures and uniqueness as well as letting our imaginations go wild using a variety of mediums
Wednesday 6/19 - Nature & Art
Campers will unleash their creativity and love for the outdoors by combining nature with art. We will create one of a kind artworks combining materials we forage from the farm with bright colors!
Thursday 6/20 - Unicorns & Magical Creatures
Campers will have a day filled with rainbows & unicorns. The kids will explore and create they're own magical creatures with a sprinkle of fairy dust!
Friday 6/21 - The Art of Recycling
Campers will use recycled and re-purposed materials to create 2D or 3D master pieces. Each camper will be encouraged to create unique art while learning about how to make the world a better place.
what to expect:
Each day will begin with a walk around the farm to get our bodies and minds moving! While touring the farm, and visiting the chickens, we will forage for natural materials that we will be incorporating in our art projects throughout the day. After a short meditation, we will begin creating right away. We will have at least two art projects per day were we will explore new techniques & mediums based on the theme of the day. Campers will also have free play/creative time as well as farm scavenger hunts and super outdoor games & activities.
