Weekly Workshop Descriptions

PAINTING: CREATURES
We'll spend the week inventing our own creatures and then creating large-scale portraits of those creations! Then, we'll transform those 2-d portraits into 3-dimensional sculptures.

SCULPTURE: INVENTIONS & MACHINES
We'll start the week by creating drawing machines using small motors and found objects. Then, we'll make mobiles using fimo, wood, and wire, using motors to make our intricate objects kinetic.

DRAWING: SELF & OTHERS
We'll begin by making large-scale self portrait paintings. Then, we'll delve into life drawing with our fellow campers as our models. We'll make a collaborative drawing of all of our campers using ink!

BAKING & EDIBLE ART
This week will be an exploration of food as an art medium. We'll make sculptures and drawings using food both baked and uncooked.

THEATRE
Campers will explore movement, voice and dramatic play through a variety of theatre activities and games. With a focus on ensemble building and fundamental theatre skills, this workshop is a fun filled week appropriate for kids with any level of theatre experience. The week will culminate in a final share for families in one of the neighborhood parks.

XYLOPHONE BAND
Strike your mallets on xylophone, metallophone, or glockenspiel and hear how your part weaves into a full ensemble. We will learn the lively marimba music of Zimbabwe, as well jazz, blues, and more! Groove to the rhythmic harmonies using these wonderfully versatile barred percussion instruments.

Here's a video from the Scribble exhibition at the Academy. To hear those low bass bars, listen through stereo speakers or good headphones! PS 180 Xylophone Group: Clave
