Art by the Sea Summer Camp  -5

Arts by the Sea summer day camp has a long tradition of offering children a chance to spend their time outdoors exploring a variety of media as they create fine art. 

Each morning, campers enjoy learning about various art styles such as Impressionism, Expressionism, Cubism etc. and explore how to apply similar characteristics in their own artworks.  Following the morning of hands-on art, including the weekly fieldtrip to paint at the beach, campers enjoy a music or drama session in the afternoon.  

The afternoon music sessions in 2018 explored traditions of Africa through stories, songs, and dances in preparation for a public performance on Friday afternoon.  In addition to singing, campers played drums, marimbas and hand percussion.   We had excellent instruments and enough for everyone to always be playing!

The afternoon drama sessions in 2018 gave the young actors the opportunity to learn the crucial skills of building characters and expressing interior emotions physically and vocally.  Campers not only had a chance to improve their public speaking skills individually, but learned how to work as an ensemble, gaining valuable leadership skills while having fun and making new friends.
