Inspiring Fearless Innovators
Be a part of something bigger
Discover an array of artistic possibilities in this transformative weeklong class. Turn everyday materials into dimensional, unconventional works of art as you draw, dye, cut and construct a crafty collection of masterpieces.
Imagine what emotions look like in shape and color, then create a piece of abstract art inspired by your feelings. Try dyeing and printing with markers, taking time to BE REFLECTIVE and hone your technique. Explore all the ways you can create and construct with paper—crumpling for texture, accordion folding for movement, tent folding for 3D figures—and BE VISIONARY as you use them to make a fantastical creature, a fiercely inventive zoo and a festive paper firework that “explodes” open. Come away with a range of inspiring new skills and a wild, expressive, explosive assortment of art.
Note: This weeklong class is more than just innovation-igniting projects—it’s an immersive experience full of delightful details, including interactive games, silly traditions, snacks (see Materials, below) and dress-up days designed to build community, bolster confidence and deliver loads of camp-away-from-camp fun.
The curriculum combines some of our most popular creative projects. If you’ve taken our single-session Quirky Creatures, Emotion Drawings, Marker Masterpieces, Fantastic Fireworks or Amazing Zoos classes, your child will be familiar with some of the week’s activities—and have the chance to put a new spin on a project they’ve done before.
