So excited to announce that we have settled on dates for our play-based arts summer camp for 2016: Imagine, Create, Grow!
I will be running two camps again this summer with my close friend and owner of Blue Door Art Studio, Kris Morse. Check out her beautiful blog! We use play, drama, music and movement to learn important ideas around art, mindfulness and story. Last year, we had an amazing time creating costumes, graphic novels, stories and using so many different kinds of materials in our art.
Here are the details:
For Rising Kindergarten Students to Grade 3 at Blue Door Art Studio in Silver Spring

Does your child love to imagine, pretend, and create? This camp will give your child the chance to learn techniques of art and theater, as well as build confidence, social and problem-solving skills. Camp activities include stories, games, visual arts, movement, drama and free-play in a comfortable, child-directed setting.
