Budding Artists, Actors, Dancers and Musicians Have a Home at Summer at Friends!

0

Do you know a child who loves art? What about dance, drama (the good kind!) or music? Summer at Friends is the place for budding artists, aspiring musicians, young actors, and dancers to spend their summer. Summer at Friends’ Fine Arts camps offer the perfect blend of art and summer camp (think fun games and activities, swimming, lunch, and more!) This year Summer at Friends is offering several new Fine Arts Camps. And don’t worry – you won’t have to pick just one!

Visual Arts Camp (June 18 – July 13) explores the works of artists around the world while drawing, painting, and sculpting a variety of animals and plants! Campers can attend one or more weeks. This new camp is selling out fast – less than 10 spaces remain!                                                                                                                                     

Dance Camp (July 30 – August 10) is a two week coed camp focused on developing and strengthening fundamental techniques for beginners and seasoned performers alike! Dance campers will be featured performers in our closing ceremony.

Dance and Film (June 18 – 29) using the Friends School campus as a stage, campers will choreograph and film dynamic routines using the pool, dining hall, and other spaces as beautiful backdrops.

For campers who want to rock, there’s Rock with Friends (July 9 – 20). Come join the band and learn how to jam on guitar, bass, drums, keys, or vocals!

Young performers will feel right at home in Imagination Alive (June 18 – July 13) as they work through the process of staging a production; while older performers looking to hone their skills will love TAKE TWO! (July 16 – 27). Did we mention that all of these performances take place in the beautifully renovated Forbush Auditorium?

 Summer at Friends is pulling out all the stops to provide campers with performance opportunities and hands on experience. Find out more at www.fscamp.org or call 410-649-3218.

Ceramists know something very important. It’s that clay, any way you slice it, is fun. And while for many adults, thinking of pottery making still recalls the famous scene from the movie Ghost (could be worse, right?), there’s an entire world of history, ecology, and craft that goes into making things out of clay. Baltimore Clayworks has been the local hub for Baltimore ceramics enthusiasts for the past 36 years. Through their Mt. Washington campus and community sites in under-resourced neighborhoods across the region, Baltimore Clayworks has brought the joy of clay to adults and children alike through innumerable classes, workshops, events and exhibitions. This summer, Baltimore Clayworks will be offering ten 1-week long summer camps for kids and teens, each with a different theme. They’re open to kids ages 6-15, and believe us, they’re all awesome.

Summer Camp at the Zoo

catch of the day fish (2)Today we’re focusing on the furthest thing from this weather: summer camp. Early as it may seem, it is in fact time to start thinking about how the kids will spend their days once school is out. One great option to check out is the week-long summer camp offered by the Maryland Zoo. It’s a great way to get the kids outside, and to give them an amazing experience interacting with and learning about the zoo’s amazing animals. The zoo’s camps work for kids from grades 2-8. And with each age group, there’s a slightly different focus– from crafts and zoo exploration for the youngest campers to wildlife conservation for the older campers.

Despite temperatures barely breaking the single digits these days, yes, it’s time to start thinking about summer – Gilman Summer.

Gilman School offers an exciting range of enrichment and skill-building experiences for girls and boys in grades 1 through 12 on its North Baltimore campus. Last summer, 370 kids from 57 different schools attended Gilman Summer programs, which range from one to six weeks in length.

Campers can enroll in more than 40 different offerings including outdoor education, 3-D video game and mobile app development, baseball statistics, SAT prep courses, college application and essay writing, and art enrichment programs. Courses are designed and taught by Gilman School faculty and field experts.

“The most important thing is that kids have fun while they are learning something new and being challenged in their abilities,” said Maryann Wegloski, director of Gilman Summer. “Academic courses give students a boost before their next school year, while some of our other programs are designed to let our campers explore their personal and creative interests.”

Among the courses taught by Gilman’s award-winning art instructor David Anderson is Surf and Skate Art – back for its third year by popular demand – in which students examine the unique design elements of surf and skate culture. A skater himself for the past 30 years, Anderson shares his passion and knowledge as students design a series of skateboard graphics, create ocean paintings on canvas, and more.

Anderson also offers half-day sessions in clay modeling, storytelling through art, studio drawing workshops, and painting with pastels and acrylics.

During the summer classes, kids are able to build their portfolios of work and expand their technique. Anderson says the real advantage to summer art programs is the length of time the kids get to spend on each project – time they don’t often have during a typical school day.DSCN4939

“We have a huge range of artists every summer – both in age and ability,” said Anderson. “The dynamic of how they learn from each other and encourage each other is always really inspiring to watch.”
