This camp is back again this summer due to its' immense popularity last summer. We'll make dream catchers from repurposed materials, and explore a variety of fiber arts which may include weaving, quilting , sewing, felting, and crochet. The campers will learn about and sample a variety of fiber arts, and choose to focus on several individual projects over the course of the week.
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!
