A search of the creative imaginations of pioneers such a Miro, Dali, Ernst, and Magritte, whose ideas have inspired modern fantasy and sci-fi.
The Mad Hatter Arts Camp lasts for six weeks each summer.
Each session is held over a two-week period and explores a different theme/time/place/culture.
Camp begins at 9:00 am each morning and ends at 2:00 pm.
We open the doors at 8:45 am for check-in and 1:45 pm for pick-up.
There is an opening show each morning that will feature the talents of our campers and counselors. Campers are treated to a variety of group games or fun activities each afternoon. Our daily program is officially over at 2:00 pm. There is nor before- or after-care.
Each child will experience traditional art (water colors, acrylics, pastels, etc.), dimensional art (clay sculptures, 3D pieces, finger knitting, etc.), science, games, music and rhythm, Culture Clash (exploring the camp theme in-depth through activities and games designed to create awareness of other cultures around the world), drama, and creative movement. Campers will attend four classes the first week, then switch to four new classes the second week.
Campers are sorted into eight age and grade appropriate groups.
Each group has 2-3 teenage counselors assigned to lead the campers to their various classes and assist them throughout the day.
A mid-morning snack and drink are provided, but campers will need to bring their own lunches. Comfortable clothing for active play and closed-toe shoes are a must.
On the last day of each session, campers will participate in our grand finale, Showcase. Parents and grandparents are invited to get a glimpse of some of the many things your children have done this summer. At the end of the show, parents will take home a bag full of their child's master pieces and be treated to post-show goodies,
