Art in the Park

Grades: Pre-K-K

All Programs

Bring art to its next natural dimension! In Art in the Park, campers will explore sculpture, painting and more. They will learn about artists who have used nature as their muse, like Jackson Pollock and Andy Goldsworthy. They’ll then recreate some of these artists’ well known works. Campers will use materials found in their homes and natural materials to create their art!

21st Century & SEL Skill Focus: Creativity, Collaboration, Responsibility, Emotion Management. Learn more about other skills we build through The EDMO Method®.

Take a look at your camper's daily schedule below, under sample projects!

Sample Projects

Mindful Foraging

Mindful Foraging

Campers will learn how to forage mindfully and sustainably to harvest items from nature. Then they will use these found objects to create unique pieces of art in the style of sculptor Andy Goldsworthy.

Campers will learn about the local flora in the area around camp. Then campers will explore elements of art composition, both two-dimensionally and three-dimensionally, and learn about the life and works of Andy Goldsworthy.

Moving Masterpieces

Moving Masterpieces

Campers will paint with movement to create their own abstract art piece, just like Jackson Pollock. They will then finish their paintings with brilliant colors to bring them to life.

Campers will learn about the techniques and legacy of Jackson Pollock, as well as about abstract art and composition.

Playful Puppets

Playful Puppets

Campers will become puppeteers and create the illusion that a puppet is alive. Juniors will create original sock puppet characters and they will work as a group to put on a short puppet skit for their peers.

Campers will learn about the use of puppets in performances around the world while exploring the elements of narrative to create a short skit. They will observe modern-day puppeteers found in cartoons, shows and even take a look at some of the astounding work of puppeteer Basil Twist.

Every day is different and we may do this through literature, various methods of meditation, group activities and/or positive vibes. We work on being curious, courageous and kind HUMANS.
