Today was the first day of camp for Spring 2014! In fashion class, campers learned basic fashion terminology and then took turn designing and modeling outfits. In art, some campers did paintings and others made three-dimensional cardboard animals that can be hung on the wall. For theater, they wrote their own short plays and began rehearsing for them. During craft time, they made necklaces and other small projects with paper, ribbon, string, feathers, and glitter. They also had dance class, outdoor time, and breaks for snack and lunch. Everyone seems to be looking forward to continuing his or her various projects tomorrow!
Today campers continued working on projects that were begun on Monday and tackled new ones. They solidified their ideas for the plays they wrote yesterday, rehearsed, and performed them for the rest of the group. The three-dimensional cardboard animals were painted and a new project, a large cardboard mobile, was begun. Some kids also made bird hand puppets out of cardboard, feathers, and paper. In fashion class, campers made people out of pipe cleaners or foil and clay and dressed them in colorful clothes. In the afternoon campers danced flamenco, funk, and did mime. In writing class with Xinef they wrote new fascinating stories.
