Our science and art camp is a hit every summer and we’re at it again! Lindsey Painter (teacher with Comal ISD) will be leading our campers through five days of engaging, hands-on science experiments with a focus on water quality, creek health and the riparian landscape. With 10 acres of hill country nature along Smith Creek, we have the perfect setting for learning about this sensitive landscape. The kids will collect and test creek water, identify water bugs to determine water quality, learn about native and non-native plants and so much more! Jennifer will lead the kids through several in-depth art projects using a variety of media, including clay*. With many repeat students from summer to summer the specific projects will be planned after the registration period so Jennifer can be sure the projects are new for the kids who have enrolled. We’ll have our hands in all kinds of art media and will explore our rocky creek terrain, so art-friendly clothes are recommended and water-friendly shoes that secure well to the feet are a must. We have so much fun!
*Please note that clay projects must dry for several days before they can be fired in the kiln, so clay projects will need to be picked up at a later date. If your child would like to glaze (add color!) to his or her ceramic piece(s), you can always sign up for one of the glazing days later in the summer.
Please bring/wear the following each day:
* a reusable water bottle
* two snacks
* a sack lunch
* wear art-friendly clothes (we also have art t-shirts available)
* wear water-friendly shoes that secure well to the feet (NO FLIP FLOPS or CROCS)
To Register: Please complete the student profile, then add the class to your cart and choose the ‘pay with a credit card’ option. If you prefer to pay with cash or check, just email Jennifer at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
