Did you know that you are living history this very second? This introspective camp will combine studio art, art history, and creative writing to help your child process what’s happening in the world as it relates to the pandemic. We’ll look at how artists have documented complicated events in history before diving into our own documentation about present-day life.
For this experience geared toward younger-elementary artists, we will build miniature 3D worlds to consider how the idea of “home” has shifted in this time. Then we will write an accompanying narrative about their experience. By zooming in on their world and collectively processing the past few months, students will have a broadened empathy and understanding of life at this moment in history and will learn why telling their story about this time matters.
All live-instruction camps are dependent on State guidelines. Should the State “dial back” gathering guidelines in the future the SCA will comply. If this should happen, all impacted classes would be cancelled; patrons would receive e-notification and be refunded.
