Every child is an artist, the problem is staying an artist when you grow up. - Pablo Picasso
For the kids to reclaim their imagination and their love for arts, we have lined up a variety of art forms for the kids to explore this summer. Each art form has its own unique story and application that the training artists specialize in and will be sharing. And whats a camp without some fun! Nothing really :) The Circular Square camp includes the fun ingredient in abundance, be it the games, music, books that kids are surrounded with, or the counter where kids DIY their lemonade to beat the heat :)
Art camp includes:
1. Clay mask making (6 hours) - Unmask some clay fun this summer. Starting with the basics of handling clay, wedging and moulding techniques, kids will learn to make decorative and abstract masks to take home.
2. Mandala making (4 hours) - Learn to create a flower garden using Mandala techniques and color a mandala framework given while drawing intricate patterns inside. Besides the beautiful patterns that come out through mandala creations, mandalas are also known to bring in focus, concentration and positivity,
3. Fluid acrylics (2 hours) - Learn to make an abstract painting using Fluid acrylic paints while swishing and swirling your canvas around. Be carefree and let the kids discover their hidden creativity.
4. Origami (4 hours) - The Japanese invented the magical art of paper folding or Origami (ori - folding, kami - paper) in the 8th century. This session will guide kids to fold beautiful paper models and convert them into fascinating sculptures like the auspicious Japanese suru (crane) and many more.
5. Typography (2 hours) - Using Typography concepts, kids will create a fun poster for their room/classroom/apartment with a message or quote of their liking. Kids will be introduced to creative lettering, writing words in pictorial form based on the word prompts/quiz given by trainer. Kids will then plan, sketch and color the poster on the paper followed by a talk about each of their art works
6. Storyboarding (2 hours) - Kids will decide on a story and learn to narrate it using pictures and dialogues with simple human figures as a comic strip by breaking the story down to scenes and frames, identifying the character/s who need to be in each scene, and finally present their storyboard to other participants.
All material required for the camp will be provided. Kids to carry a hand towel to wipe hands (for any arts that necessitate wiping) and small carton box to carry their creations (particularly needed for the clay mask). This camp is fun and relevant for all kids from the age of 6 years to 14 years.
