*New Summer 2015* Dynamic Art Summer Camp

This unique program is a moving Art project, where children 7 to 12, build unique art projects that are animated. Each project incorporates visual designs that the student arranges as their own creation and through a variety of devices ensures that this sculpture moves. The Dynamic Art program combines art and technology while challenging your child to explore the relationship of these ideas. Through this program your child will be given the experience of making moving sculptures. Through the use of motors, gears and pulleys your child will learn how to turn their art to an exciting new level. They will be making beautiful and fun unique sculptures that exist as art and decorative objects. Campers will create unique moving pieces of art and closely examine the partnership between engineering and art. Morning (9-11:30am) and afternoon (12:30-3pm) camp options are available.
