The Praire Arts Center will go deep during these two weeks, exploring earth's most mysterious habitat. We will create sea creature puppets based on deep sea drone photographs, listen to whale sonar, and map the ocean zones.
This summer. in order to keep both students and staff safe as the Prairie Arts Center slowly reopens, we have decided to offer our summer camp sessions virtually. With the aim of providing a sense of community and shared space similar to our traditional camps, they will take place in a synchronous learning environment. In other words, a live, real-time classroom with other students and an instructor on Zoom. Students will meet from 9:30-10:30 each morning for instruction and discussion. From 10:30-11:30, the instructor will remain available on the Zoom platform while students are free to take a break, have a snack, and finish up their project. Students will be able to check in with the instructor at any time during this break for guidance, company, or conversation. From 11:30-12, the class will once again meet all together, this time sharing their work and discussing the experience. A supply list will be provided ahead of time. In order to keep it simple and affordable, we will be sticking with two dimensional works using pencil, pen, markers, watercolors, collage materials, glue, and scissors. For the older students, there will be an emphasis on skill-based instruction.
