Campers of all artistic experience welcome! Does your child love hearing a story? Do you see them imagining and living out their favorite story characters?

Draw, print, collage, paint and construct your way through ancient and modern-day legends and myths from across the world, including Greek, Chinese, European and American traditions. Artmaking will emphasize the drama of each story through elements of art, color and line shape using a wide variety of mediums including drawing, painting and 3-D construction. Live readings, improvmsessions and other theatrical activities willmprompt campers to discover and interpretmthese stories.


This art camp will encourage the integration of art and drama by following a multi-faceted theme throughout the week, incorporating a tactile exploration of literature, culture, drama, and of course, art.


While connecting art and drama, your camper will:

• Revel in the mythologies of ancient Greek culture through the story of Daedalus and Icarus.
• Explore the range of medieval literature from Robin Hood to Shakespeare.
• Discover ancient Chinese culture and the role of heroes and heroines through “The Ballad of Hua Mulan,” the ancient legend that inspired the Disney movie “Mulan.”
• Experience classic American authors suchas Mark Twain and Laura Ingalls Wilder. Week-long sessions will culminate in creative art projects bringing to life these myths and legends.
