Project: ART Camp 2013   Leave a comment

Human Spirograph

Our first camp of the summer was titled Project: ART. We started the week with a game called “Clay Wars” where teams competed against each other with sculpting challenges such as “build the tallest tower in two minutes!” Campers then began working on scripts for their short films after discussing all of the necessary elements to create an interesting story.

We got down on the floor to create giant human spirograph drawings inspired by Tony Orrico.

Campers began filming after casting parts, gathering costumes, and setting scenes.

Campers also did a lot of painting, experimenting, paper cutting, game playing, and even tattooed some bananas!

Discover your creative side! Families are invited to join us on Saturdays in the Arts for All room to explore performance, visual and language arts through fun, hands-on activities. Arts for All engages participants more deeply with the GPAC’s exhibits. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

 

One of the oldest art forms in the world, weaving is simple, fun, and has endless possibilities. Join the fun as we weave on coat hangers, cups, plates, hula hoops, and even tree branches!
