During the week of August 8, Discoveries campers will discuss and learn more about the styles of modern painting, including examples by famed artist Piet Mondrian, and they will also continue to practice observational drawing.
For the week of July 25, our Discoveries campers will be introduced to great artists Pablo Picasso, Barnett Newman, Robert Motherwell and Jackson Pollack, to name a few, and they will be encouraged to appreciate art through the perspective of an art critic.
In addition, campers will work on self portraits as they study vertical and horizontal lines in their artwork!
During the week of July 18 our Discoveries campers will be introduced to contemporary and impressionist artists like Picasso, Matisse, Vincent van Gogh and MANY more!
Inspired by our Olympics theme this summer, we will also read Element of Art: Texture and Perspective and learn about art from other countries and cultures, including Aboriginal art, art made by indigenous Australian people.
Welcome! Here’s helpful information for our first week!
“DE Dismissal Sign”-Attached to the welcome letter, each family will receive a neon dismissal sign. These signs will be placed on the passenger side dashboard of the cars during dismissal. This will expedite pick-up and help identify Discoveries Campers versus Adventures. If you would like to include the children’s names on the signs, you can write their names somewhere on the front of the card.
Water-Play will be held on Wednesday, June 29, 2016
On Water Play days, send children already dressed in their bathing suits and covered with sun block.
Send a change of dry clothes for them to change into afterward.
