Exploring the “ARTS”
Email: Kristine Petermeier
Each week of summer camp promises new activities, curiosities and, projects. Exploring the “ARTS” provides a broad framework for the camp structure. Our summer camp is designed to be wonderfully open-ended, each day is a new possibility.
Each week campers can expect art projects, science projects, books and story writing that will connect to the element of exploration for that week.
Week# 1: Natural Sculpture & Design with Trinity Architects
Gallery Show! Design Presentations
July 5th- July 8th- $325
Frank Lloyd Wright – “Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.”
Come join Trinity summer camp students to discover the beauty and intricacies of design and architecture in the natural environment in and around our school campus. Students will explore the landscape, searching for natural materials such as rocks, plants and
grasses, animal fur, bird feathers, and twigs. Students can observe how nature’s ‘architects’ create sculpture and design in a bird’s nest, for example, or the twisting branches of a tree searching for the light of the sun. We will then take our observations and natural materials into the classroom to design and build our own architectural creations. Displaying and describing our designs to friends and family will culminate our week of fun and exploration.
Week #2: ‘Culinary Arts’ with Trinity Chefs!
Picnic/ Tea at school or Sharon Park
July 11th-15th- $400
“Cooking is at once child’s play and adult joy. And cooking done with care is an act of love.” Craig Claiborne
Trinity School summer students will not only be cooking and baking delicious food, but will be learning more about the culinary arts by exploring kitchen terms, safety, and techniques. We will learn about ‘kneading’ dough, ‘grating’ cheese, testing whether pasta is ‘Al dente’ and whether it’s best to ‘mix’, ‘stir’, or ‘fold’ in certain ingredients for the best
results! We will learn a bit about world ‘cuisines’and examine how to use fresh and nutritious ingredients for our meals. Friends and family are invited to sample some of our treats at a mini feast at the end of the week.
Week#3: ‘Applied Arts’ with Trinity Masters!
July 18th-22nd- $400
Trinity summer camp students will find out that‘Art’ is more than just pencils, paints, and paper. Come explore the world of ‘Applied Arts’. From fashion design to photography, to abstract splatter painting, students will use their imaginations to discover their creative skills using a variety of art media and techniques. At the end of our week, friends and family will be invited to view our ownTrinity Art Gallery featuring creations from up and coming young artists…our very own Trinity students!
Week #4: ‘Performing Arts’ with Trinity Thespians
Performance on Friday at Trinity Amphitheater!
July 25th-29th- $400
‘To Be or Not To Be…”
Trinity School summer camp students could ‘be’ producing and performing a play from Shakespeare, adapting a Dr. Seuss book, or even unveiling
our own original story. Students will be finding out just what it takes to put on a show. Come be a part of the theatre scene, from backdrops, props, and costumes, to rehearsing scripts and learning to confidently speak up and ‘dramatically’ perform one’s part. Presenting our exploratory ‘theatrical’ work to friends and family at the end of a week will be our grand finale!
