Due to popular demand, this summer will be our inaugural minicamp for Miniscribblers in our Dobbs Ferry studio! Minicamp is a 2-hour drop off experience comprised of 45 minutes of sensory play centers, a mid-morning snack/storytime (healthy snack provided, nut-free) and 45 minutes of art-making. Each week we’ll have a theme that permeates all of these aspects of the day.
July 22nd-26th: Shape:
We’ll be learning and exploring shapes this week at minicamp! Our sensory play centers will focus on finding, sorting, naming and making our own shapes. During snack/storytime, we’ll read our favorite books about shapes. Then, we’ll delve into art-making with painting on circular surfaces, building sculptures out of wooden cubes and making a collaborative large-scale print using blocks.
July 29th-August 2nd: Line:
This week, it’s all about line! Sensory play centers will include linear objects. During snack/storytime we’ll read our favorite (and most beautiful) books about lines. Our art projects this week will include line paintings, line found object collages and a collaborative large-scale line painting.
August 5th-9th: Color:
Color is such an important aspect of art-making but also for all descriptive language. Sensory play centers will include color searching, sorting, and mixing. During snack/storytime, we’ll read our favorite books. For art-making this week, we’ll make drip paintings, spray paintings and a collaborative large-scale color mixing painting.
