Design & Build a Parade Float 4th - 8th grades

$300

with Mame McKee & MK Monley

Calendar Jul 5, 2021 at 9 am, runs for 1 week

Design and build: Monday - Friday, Parade on Saturday at 3 pm.

Each summer Waterbury Rotary Club organizes a Not Quite Independence Day Parade and festivities and so each year we jump at the chance to design and build a fabulous parade float! Sometimes we win ribbons but we always have great fun! This year the parade will be on July 10th to comply with the Governor’s safe gathering guidelines and the theme is The Roaring 20’s.

Kids will research the 1920s and compare it to their experience of, and vision for, the 2020’s. We will start by writing a simple play. From there we will brainstorm clever ideas to tell our story visually on the stage that will become our float.

This is a focused and ambitious camp with only five days to design and create elaborate and cohesive staging. We accomplish all this using individual ideas developed and created by teams. Every child will have the opportunity to have their own art shine and the satisfaction of helping their friends create as well.

Lots of painting and drawing and making and figuring and fitting and thinking and laughing and playing in this camp!

 

PARADE LINE UP AT 3 PM ON 7/10/21. PARADE STARTS AT 4 PM.

Will run

Art with a Global Perspective 5th - 8th grade

$300

with Several Instructors

Calendar Aug 9, 2021 at 9 am, runs for 1 week

 We are excited to have three instructors bring new summer programing to our camps!

 Instructor - Julio Desmont: Go treasure hunting to learn about the rich culture and colors of Haiti. Treasure hunting is a source of inspiration for Julio becoming an artist. We'll look at the people, objects, and places that tell the artist's story. Students will explore the basics of color, lines and shapes in painting your own story.  

Instructor - Ali Beddoe: Learn the stories of ancient artifacts. Students will work in clay to create an artifact that in the end we hope is utilitarian art. Though the shape/form/function will be based on the ancient item, the design/glaze/pattern will represent modern time.

Instructor - Marlena Tucker Fishman: Learn about Stepping; the art of making percussion music using one's full body to stomp, clap, and chant. Students will journey from the lines of South Africa to US universities and communities to learn about the history and culture of this form of dance. Participants will collaborate to create unique step routines that will help build confidence, and spark creativity in a supportive peer environment.
