Week 1 Start Camp - Recycled Art, Mixed Media Madness, Thingamakids!


Recycled Art - CAMPers bring new life to discarded materials like plastic, paper, wood, etc. as they learn to differentiate materials, solve problems surrounding each type of element, and techniques to interface various materials (adhesives, paints, finishes, etc.). CAMPers will apply these principles to practical or artistic projects of their choosing. Artist: Marina Caliari

Mixed Media Madness - Printing, collage, bookmaking, basketry, and of course, fun! CAMPers will experiment in a variety of different mediums to bring their imaginative ideas to life! Artist: April Gavin

Thingamakids! - Combining music, art, and science, Thingamakids! campers will create their own wacky musical instruments from recycled objects. Through the trash-to-treasure process of instrument-building, CAMPers will learn about the science of sound and how work together to create musical games and compositions. CAMPers will bring their personalized instruments home at the end of the week. Artist: Teaching Artists from Thingamajigs, Camp 510’s partner organization.
