Camps

Our studio is packed with action during PA day camps. Both inside the studio and in outside in the garden, children work on small and large scale projects such as models, installation, and performances. Each camp also gives all children an opportunity to climb our rock wall and spend time outdoors on slack lines and playing games.

MY HIDEAWAY

Ages 5-7 and 8-11 Children visualize and build 3D models of their own special space, that is either a shelter from the storm, a room, a treehouse, a cabin in the woods. They will be guided to think about and come up with all of the things they would need to have inside to make it their own special place. As a group they will have an opportunity to put together a simple installation of a group hideaway containing creations from each child. They will present their works at the end of the day to parents. They will also spend time taking turns on the climbing wall and outdoors on slack lines and playing games. Please bring lunch and two snacks. Wear comfortable clothing and bring indoor running shoes.

A CITY THAT STARTS WITH A T...

Ages 5-7 and 8-11 This week children will be guided to reinvent and reimagine some of Toronto landmarks and residential streets, parks, subway, streetcars and all of the other stuff that is part of the architecture and landscape of the city that they love. Starting with photos of recognizable places kids will find ways to change them and add to them using collage, drawing, painting. These early two dimensional sketches, works and explorations will serve as starting point for more elaborate projects which may involve large scale painting, 3 D models, dioramas, installations. On the last day of camp children will present a small performance about a city street for parents. Kids will spend part of each day taking turns on climbing wall and in outdoor games and on slack lines outside. Each day kids need to bring a lunch and two snacks. Please wear comfortable clothing and bring indoor running shoes.

MY SHELTER DESIGN

Children are invited to imagine, sketch and plan their own special shelter in our garden. They will start by observing and drawing the environment. Various materials will be used to further their ideas creating collages, paintings and models. Using ideas from all of the children we will build a group shelter and make a presentation on the last day.
