ART & MAGIC

"Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." - Roald Dahl

 

In art & magic camp we will explore literature and stories about magic, learn magic tricks,  and create our own magic wands.  If you are a Harry Potter fan, you'll love this camp. Students will be guided by experienced and passionate teachers who honor their creative experience. Parents are invited to attend an art gallery curated by the students on Friday afternoon at 3:00 PM.

The children will spend 30 - 45 minutes outside during the morning and afternoon on the shaded campus.  Some children choose to work on their personal art projects during this time while others get plenty of exercise. 

All camps focus on the process of making art rather than finished product. Research shows that providing children with open ended activities promotes creativity. Ultimately, at this camp we focus on developing creativity, collaboration, patience with the process of bringing a vision to life, and  a love for learning.  Your child will not come home with the same creations as the other children because we leave space for the children to synthesize information and play. 

All of the summer camps meet at Four Seasons Community School at  3909 Adelphi Lane in Austin, Texas. Campers may check in at the front office at 9am, and can be picked up in front of the school at 3 PM daily. Campers are expected to bring a lunch and 2 snacks each day. Please wear clothes that you can get messy in because we plan on having a blast!
