ARTS, THEATRE & PUPPET CAMP
"I regard theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which can share with another, the sense of what it is to be a human being."
Campers will study a combination of theatre and puppetry. During the week students will prepare props, costuming, choreography and staging for a performance. Parents are invited to attend a viewing of their students production on Friday at 11:30 am. Popcorn will be served. Please notify us of any dietary restrictions in writing or by e-mail.
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 Austin International School. 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!
