Summer Camp 2022: Block 1
Week 1: June 27-July 1 & Week 2: July 5-July 8* | Arts Time Travel
*Please note that week 2 is a 4-day week, since we will be observing Monday, July 4 as a holiday. Camp for week 2 will run Tuesday, July 5-Friday, July 8
During weeks 1 and 2, campers can expect to be transported through history by learning about the various eras and arts movements that have evolved throughout time. How did the first cave paintings and, later on, Egyptian hieroglyphics help humans tell stories? What are the similarities and differences between Roman art and 80s pop art? What kinds of materials were artists using in 1700s England? These are the kinds of topics campers can expect to engage with in hands-on projects. They will be encouraged to make connections about art as an universal and infinite means of expression.
Campers will spend the day alternating between indoors and outdoors activities with their primary counselor and will also participate in specialty classes (such as yoga, dance, clay/ceramics, etc.) throughout the week. Markeim has designed every day differently in order to expand our campers’ minds. At the end of week 2, Markeim will host an art show featuring camper artwork from both weeks 1 & 2. Campers only attending week 1 may opt in to leave select works of theirs for the exhibit, which may be picked up from the Markeim on or after Friday, July 8.
The camp schedule is separated into two main categories and three time frames:
- Morning Arts Exploration | 9:00 am-12:00 pm | Ages 5-12
Morning Arts Exploration is a broad approach to the arts designed for campers aged 5-12. Campers will explore a wide range of materials, practices, and approaches ranging from drawing and painting to collage making, watercolor, and 3D sculpture. In addition to daily arts projects, campers will also engage in specialty workshops (such as dance, martial arts, or yoga) that encourage movement and expression. Outside activities will be built into the daily schedule. Campers will be split into weekly cohorts based on age and ability level. Morning Arts Exploration registration is limited to 36 campers per session.
- Afternoon Clay | 1:00-4:00 pm | Ages 8-14
Afternoon Clay will specifically focus on the art of clay, pottery, and ceramics and is limited to older campers, ages 8-12. Campers will have the opportunity to learn new or expand upon existing handbuilding and wheel-throwing techniques, while creating a wide array of original clay pieces. Campers will also be introduced to various glazing techniques and will learn about the process of firing. Campers will be split into weekly cohorts based on clay experience and ability. Afternoon Clay registration is limited to 20 campers per session.
- Full Day Experience | 9:00 am-4:00 pm | Ages 8-14
The Full Day Experience is for campers aged 8-14 to participate in both Morning Arts Exploration and Afternoon Clay, with a supervised hour-long lunch and recreation break built in from 12:00-1:00 pm.
For the foreseeable future, masks will be recommended for all camp attendees. Campers will be separated into cohorts based on age and ability level and will be spaced appropriately throughout the rooms to ensure proper physical distancing.
