When schools out, we're in! Indulge your creative child with a weeks-long camp adventure in the world of art, creation, exploration, and experimentation. Campers will learn about colors, art techniques, and how to express themselves through art. Students will need to bring their morning snack, lunch, and afternoon snack and should dress to get dirty.

So, Why Sew?

October 19-23, 2020 @ 9 a.m.-12 p.m.
Level One Ages: 8-10 years old
Instructor : Melinda Roell
Tuition: $100 ($75 member) + $35 supply fee

Sewing is a valuable skill with life-long benefits. When kids learn to sew, they not only gain self-confidence, they develop hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. Sewing also strengthens math skills (but don't tell!) while being creative. As with most projects, sewing requires some advance planning and preparation, so kids hone their problem-solving skills. Sewing will help develop an appreciation for the work put into clothing, usually leading to better care and repair of their own clothing. And finally, sewing unleashes one's creative spirit. Whether sewing pandemic masks or stuffed animals, street clothing or elaborate theatrical costumes, everyone can be creative with a sewing machine and some fabric. Students will get instruction in stitch control speed and direction, proper machine threading, winding and loading bobbin thread, inserting needle, using an iron, pinning and cutting fabric according to a pattern, following sewing directions, and sewing machine care. Camp project will be a drawstring bag or stretch waisted skirt.
