It’s already July, and maybe your kids are getting a little antsy. We’ve done some research, and here are some activities, inspired by our Summer Art Camps, that you can do at home with your kids.
And, even though Summer is underway, you can still sign your kids up for fun camps at The Art League through August 17! Check out the following activities… and get ready to be creative, problem solve, have FUN, and get a little bit messy. No boring summers allowed!
A Killer Whale takes shape during the Life Size Paper Mache camp!
Art Camp is all about inspiring creativity in kids at different ages! These activities will keep your kids entertained, engaged and energetic. For some projects, things can get a little messy, so don’t forget to set up outside and make sure to cover anything that might be likely to get “artified.”
Unleash your child’s imagination this summer! Art camp provides children a wonderful introduction to several forms of visual art. In our regular art camp, each day brings a new project that may include drawing, painting, printmaking, or sculpture. The sky’s the limit!
Art Camp at The Art League
Practice Creativity and Fine Motor Skills with Jewelry Making
For younger kids, practicing fine motor skills without them getting into a lot of dangerous bead work can be a concern. These project ideas promote fine motor skills in smaller kids, without the risk of all those teeny-tiny beads or sharp objects. The magazine strip beads are an especially good project because they cost next to nothing and are simple and easy to make for little ones who want to get started in jewelry making. The washer charm jewelry is the perfect project for older kids.
In Photo Camp, kids will learn a variety of beginner photography techniques including the basics of black and white darkroom and pinhole camera photography. All equipment, INCLUDING cameras, and materials are provided for campers.
