Week 4 Highlights (July 17 – 21, 2017)
New Media Experiences & Outdoor Explorations!
Enrichment campers in the Advertising Executive course this week learned power words and how to appeal to an audience in advertising. Making posters about their “agency” taught them how to draw people in with words and pictures. Each “agency” presented their idea to the class like it was a “real deal” pitch.
Fake News was THE course to take this week for campers interested in fact-checking and learning how to question sources of news and other online media. Campers looked closely at social media posts, and analyzed if they were real or newsworthy to pass on. They also learned how companies, brands and services track online behavior. Campers are now more critical about their news consumption and more ‘net savvy in general!
Enrichment course campers in Video Production loved learning from expert freelance videographer Lander Camarero. The campers worked as actors, editors, and producers, and employed imagination and technology both to apply new techniques, including voice-overs with the use of echo.
The first part of this two-week, intensive “Immersive” course had campers enjoying Woodworking, Drawing, Acting, Movement, and Sculpture. A highlight was a field trip to Storm King Art Center. Next week these campers can look forward to Printmaking and Painting/Mixed-Media, plus a special exhibit/presentation for their families and friends on Friday, July 28!
Vegetable Gardening & Cooking
Campers in the Vegetable Gardening & Cooking Enrichment course this week enjoyed summer’s bounty, including fresh Cherokee Purple, Gold Medal, and Heirloom Tomatoes from the Dwight-Englewood Upper School garden. They handpicked and then fried the tomatoes, added mozzarella cheese and topped it all off with homemade pesto sauce. Bon appetit!
