Summer Arts Camps for Kids
Due to the success of past one-day art activities, the Honeywell Center will offer six weeks of Summer Arts Camps for students K-8th grade beginning in June. Each week-long camp meets Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., and focuses on music, theater or visual art. The program seeks to give students an outlet for their creativity.
Camp schedules are:
Art Camp: June 25-29, for grades 3-8. Students will learn about the different types of Street Art, including graffiti and mural-making. Students will work with instructor Sarah Andrews to turn a structure outside the Honeywell Center into their own work of art. $40 per student.
Intro to Art Camp: July 9-13, for grades K-6. Students will work with Karen Eilts-Walter to learn different types (mediums) of art each day and create several projects to take home. $40 per student.
Theater Camp: July 16-20, for grades 2-6. Students will learn the basics of theater acting and participate in a mini production with VPA instructor Emily France. $40 per student.
Intro into Music Camp: July 23-27, for grades K-6. Instructor Emily France will lead students in learning about the basics of music as they sing along together and learn about how music is made. $40 per student.
Recycled Art: July 30-Aug. 3, for grades 3-8. Working alongside artist, author and jewelry designer Candie Cooper, students will see art in a completely different way as they create projects from materials that can be found around your house and beyond. $40 per student.
The Art of Story Telling: Aug. 6-10, for grades 2-6. Students will spend the week learning the Japanese art of Kamishibai storytelling and create their own Kamishibai theater and story cards. $40 per student.
YMCA Summer Central’s campers are able to register for these classes at the YMCA. YMCA camp counselors will bring students who attend the arts camps to and from the Honeywell Center.
