When it comes to summer camp, many
parents want their kids to try something new and different, have fun with their
peers, but also keep their brains stimulated. Summer camp offers children
the unique opportunity to delve into interests and activities that can help
them grow and learn in new ways.
“Camp can be an opportunity to make new
friends, learn new skills and discover hidden talents," Terry Groehler, executive director of Art Innovators,
said. “Children's enrichment activities can allow them to have an
entertaining summer camp experience that also enhances their development and
Art Innovators, which serves the West Los Angeles and surrounding areas, is an
art enrichment program for kids of all ages and lets children discover various
artistic styles and techniques using a variety of mediums such as water colors,
high quality art markers, colored pencils, chalk, charcoal and polymer
Art Innovators summer campers can
participate in themed programs including “Creature Camp’ where children will Discover
how dragons got their fiery reputation, create your own creature puppet, and
learn some special art tricks that will help you draw anything you can imagine.
Or “Caribbean Adventure” where
children will have fun filled days with treasure maps, sculptures, Caribbean
Island drawings, acrylic painting and other projects related to the Caribbean
The camps’ use of age appropriate,
safe, professional-level art supplies, creative activities and focusing
exercises can enhance learning and build skills that the children can use
during the school year. “Our activities include communication,
imagination and expression which keep the kids’ brains in an active learning
mode,” says Groehler.
