Week 7 Start Camp - Sewing, Capoeira, Bamboozle!


Sewing - When you can sew, you can do anything!  This week CAMPers will learn how to sew by hand and/or by machine as they develop and complete 2-3 projects such as stuffies, aprons, tote bags. Our realm of possibilities is open to our imaginations. Artist: April Gavin

Capoeira - Capoeira is an Afro Brazilian Art form that combines Martial Arts/Dance/Gymnastics/Music and singing. CAMPers will get to let loose and take their shoes off (literally) while we explore this unique art form of Capoeira. We will be learning the fundamentals movements during this class in a fun environment. By the end of the week, your child will be fight/dancing, and doing cartwheels all the way home. Capoeira Teacher: Contramestre Pincel

Bamboozle! - In this week long exploration we encounter a dozen styles of instruments all created from one very useful and prevalent landscaping plant: Bamboo. From ancient times, humans living with bamboo have used it for food, shelter and to build entire orchestras of diverse and melodic sounds, strange and haunting harmonies and versatile percussion instruments. We will make bull roarers, xylophones, rasps, plosive percussion tubes and simple string zithers. We will also learn about text scores, how to write and perform them, and collaboratively compose a short work for performance on our final day, using the RSVP process pioneered by legendary dancer Anna Halprin. Artist: David Samas from Thingamajigs, CAMP 510’s partner organization.
