Creative Genius Summer Camps
Create your Story and see what makes you Uniquely YOU!

Description

The ArtReach Project anticipates a fun 2018 Summer Camp season!

Create your story during summer camp and discover what makes you uniquely YOU!

The goal of The ArtReach Project is to connect Creativity with a Cause. Not your typical art studio, we specialize in creating not just art but artists with our focus on giving back to the community.

Creative Genius Camps utilize an interactive, hands on approach to teach the steps to the creative process, cultivate artistic expression, and create an awareness of the importance of creativity in our culture with an emphasis on modeling, mentoring, and building confidence as creative thinkers and imagination specialists.

Each student will participate in a series of lessons/exercises each week as a part of our curriculum designed to cultivate the artistic growth of each individual child. At ArtReach, each student receives personal attention and is carefully mentored as they mature. Although each session is customized for the group attending, we will search for the Hidden Creative Treasures in each student every day with the following components of our curriculum:

Visual Art Exploration: It’s important to take the time to learn and research our ideas to best formulate an approach before getting out the materials. Students will learn to temper their ideas with a little bit of advance prep before diving in.

Experiment/Art Lab Component: Trying out the “what if?” question forms the basis of creative thinking and is how we feed our imaginations. Students will be allowed to think outside the box as they experiment with the ideas and elements of how science and art are harmonious.

Real life application/Examples in Nature: Through exposure to examples found in our natural/man made environments, students will learn to see the world through the eyes of an artist

Creative Time: Skills are important to the artist, no matter what age, so there will be plenty of time for Thought Investigation and the personal freedom to explore one’s own ideas with real art materials.

Set up/Clean up: Students will learn how to handle materials responsibly and be expected to clean up and keep their work area tidy.

Problem Solving: Art is a process that takes repeated problem solving and a flexible approach. This is modeled as well as taught.

Collaboration: We teach a concept we call “Idea Sharing” which eliminates competition and fosters collaboration. We all benefit in a world where we know how to work with others in a respectful give and take manner and since Giving is one of the foundational cores of ArtReach, collaboration is key.

Generosity: Students will be challenged to consider how art influences our culture in positive ways and how that begins with each individual. The goal of our youth programs is that each student will be able to recognize what their own personal Creative Genius is and how to use it for good for the rest of their lives.

Cost:

Mini Makers Camp $75

Ages 6-8, from 10am-noon

This camp is designed with little creative enthusiasts in mind. Our morning camp sessions will pair Mini-Makers with the Creative Explorers for collaborative and hands on fun. New concepts will be introduced to the mixed age group and explored together while sharing thoughts, ideas, and skills.

Creative Explorer Camp $145

Ages 9-12, from 10am-4pm (break from 12:30-1:30 for lunch)

This camp has more built in hours to create than any ArtReach Camp has ever had before! That's because we find that most kids want to stick around longer just so they can have more time to make stuff. Their creative growth will be encouraged and students will be given a chance to go deeper with their ideas and endeavors.

$10 discount for early registrations

Discount Deadline is May 1st

Sessions:

Camp Sessions run Monday-Thursday
Our camps are designed for youth ages 6-12 with a half day camp for ages 6-8 that overlaps with a full day camp for youth ages 9-12. This allows siblings to attend camp together and when the younger kids leave at lunch time, the older kids can dive deeper into their projects. We also offer a special Family Art Night for the students and their families on Friday evening from 6-8pm at the conclusion of each camp.

Family Art Night:
Family and friends are invited to join the students for Family Art Night on Friday evening following each week of camp from 6-8pm to try out an art lesson taught by the students, enjoy light refreshments, and have a student guided tour of the studio.
