The first ever interdisciplinary week at CREATIVE ARTS started Summer 2012 camp off with a jungle beat! Students got a taste of art, music and theater in this fun, exciting and non-stop immersive arts experiment.
In “Carnival!” students explored the rhythms of Brazilian samba, the costumes of Carnival and the theatrics of puppet shows. Studying everything from the flora and fauna of the Amazon rainforest to the elaborate costume designs of David Cage and Alexander McQueen, students gathered inspiration from many sources to create their unique costumes.
For the final day, campers showed off their Carnival pride to friends and family with a colorful parade of Samba Schools, creative puppet plays and musical displays of the beats of South America. Don’t miss the fun in the upcoming weeks...
Make sure to check out CREATIVE ARTS’ upcoming Summer programs now through August 24th. Highlights for the week of July 23-27 include “Jungle Animals” for Mini Masters ages 3-6. Walk like a monkey, chirp like a bird and give your best lion roar in this fun-filled week of jungle mania! Students will use creative play and different art media to explore the jungle. For ages 6-12 in Art Adventure, join us for “Transforming the Ordinary”, an exploration of large-scale sculptures inspired by artists Claes Oldenburg, Maya Linn and David Smith. Students will turn the ordinary into the extraordinary while thinking about the objects we use every day in new ways. Print with elastic bands, draw with twigs, build large scale installations with recycled material and more while thinking outside the box!
