Arts Smarts 2024 – Week 1: VISUAL ART Morning Session – Grades 3-5

Monday, June 17, 2024
Doors: 9am | Performance: 9am

Experiment Like an Artist!
This week, young artists will try out different art forms from collage to abstract expressionism. They’ll learn to take creative risks and turn everyday materials into amazing artworks through hands-on activities and teamwork.

Campers can register for morning sessions from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM, afternoon sessions from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM, or both! (For those staying all day, there is a supervised lunch period. Lunches must be brought to camp and will be refrigerated.) Morning and afternoon snacks are provided. Both mornings and afternoons feature a “Common Hour” in which all campers join together for a large group creative multi-disciplinary activity. On Fridays of both weeks, there are morning and afternoon performance showcases and art exhibits for families and friends featuring the campers’ work of each week. Drop-off and pick-up at the Ware Center is supervised by the staff. Registration deadline is May 17, 2024.
