MT. KISCO- Make a Comedy Kids Camp @ Katonah Art Center

Kids love to be silly and this is the place to do it! Campers will design and shoot their own movie from a script they write themselves! Class will cover screenwriting, storyboarding, shooting, acting for the camera, and editing on iMovie. Our film will then be posted on YouTube to be shared with friends. This camp is limited to six students.

 

MONDAY, August 12 – FRIDAY, August 16, 2019 

1 – 4 pm

 

 

For grades 3 – 5

 

$360

 

KAC’s Kids Camp is a great alternative to full-day summer-long programs. The small camp groups enable students to receive individual attention in a warm, family-like atmosphere. All of KAC’s Art camps are one-week sessions with half-day, full-day and extended-day options.

Campers should dress for a mess and bring a snack each day as we have a small “recess” outside, with lawn games and crafts. Full-day campers should also bring a lunch to be escorted to lunch and their next afternoon camp. See Camp FAQs for more info.

Please note: Subjects listed are options – choose one subject for each half-day weekly session. Materials are included for all camps, except where noted in the camp descriptions.

MILLBROOK – Art & Science Camp (Ages 12-16) @ The Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies

Ecology and the Art of Scientific Observation

 

How can we combine both artistic creativity and scientific investigation to understand the world around us? Students will explore this question and many others in this weeklong summer course taught by artist and conservation biologist Hara Woltz.

 

2019 Art & Science Camp Schedule:

Session 1: Bugs & the Micro World theme

July 22-26, 9 am-4 pm

$375

Session 2: Wildlife theme

July 29- August 2

9 am -4 pm

$375

 

This course will offer an alternative to the traditional summer camp and will be a transformative experience for students looking to deepen their understanding of the environment where they live. During the week, students will create visually layered experimental field journals, and engage in Intersite-specific art creation based on scientific research. Students will experiment with a number of techniques including data visualization, sketching, collaging, writing, and critical questioning that make the process of notation compelling, creative, and highly enjoyable.

 

Because the Art+Science class is unique from Eco-Discovery camp, middle schoolers who attend camp are also eligible to attend the Art+Science camp.
