They’ll learn about the many unique art forms of these two diverse cultures through music, art, dance and drama. Classes include: Fascinating Rhythm, Trash to Treasure, Carnival Costumes, Taiko Drum, Handmade Papers/Books, The Japanese Garden, Ukiyo-e Prints, and a lot more.
Ages: grades 1-5 (“A Start With the Arts” available for preschool ages 4-5) Register by mail or by phone (651-698-2787) by June 30, 2012.
P.S. There are some really great Art & Creativity Camps for Teens available too (Upcycling Your Wardrobe, Robotic Scarecrow for the Garden, Japanese Bento Boxes…).
And if you thought summer camp has to be expensive, think again. Thanks, Joanne, for passing along this series of grant-funded low-cost summer art camps in NE Minneapolis. Choose from Camp Mexico, Camp CREATE for Teens: Upcycling the Urban Garden, and Camp West Africa. Just $50 for 5 days! (Note: These camps are affiliated with NE Community Lutheran Church but don’t appear to be religion-based.)
Ages: pre-K – 6th grade
