ILLUSION IN ART | June 7–11
Explore how illusion is used to trick the eye, both in human-made artwork and in natural elements all around us. Perception, perspective, pattern and camouflage are explored in projects using multiple media. Campers learn a little art history, too!

PUBLIC ART | June 21–25
Public art is all around us, from where we shop to where we play. Work together to create a large-scale art piece in this camp! For inspiration, we study the Hearst Sculpture Garden and travel to nearby parks. Look for our campers making their mark on Cedar Falls!

MYTH AND FOLKLORE | July 12–16
Inspired by ancient myths and folklore from various cultures, projects are based on the vivid imagery of stories new and old. All around the world imagery is used to tell stories, come create your own!

ART OF SCIENCE | July 26–30
Art is intertwined in all aspects of life, especially science! Campers observe and research local plants and animals and respond to science with art! Campers explore various fossils, bones, and critters, and get up close with the micro-world of cells. We also delve into the world of botany throughout the week.

GET MESSY | August 16–20
Leave the mess for us! Experiment with the messiest of mediums including slime, papier-mâché, papermaking, ceramics and clay. We paint with our feet, pop paint balloons, launch paint catapults and much more! Dress for a mess—things get messy!
