Sculpture: Clay, Wood, & More: Let's share the joys of working with our hands to create imaginative, unique, and masterful sculptures!  Materials to spark our creativity may be clay, wood, found objects, paper mache, and more.  Sculpture from around the world and throughout time will inspire us to create new forms in conversation with artists and makers who came before!


Drawing and Painting: Look closely at the world around you - what surprises do you see? What textures, colors, and shapes? In this camp, young artists will learn techniques for drawing and painting interesting objects and scenes from observation, fellow classmates, and imaginative settings and subjects! Through fun exercises and experimentation, we will learn art fundamentals such as mixing colors and how to use the elements of art and principles of design to compose compelling and creative artworks.

Inventor's Club: Calling all inventors! Children will engage in collaborative problem solving, then design, prototype, and refine wildly imaginative inventions using interesting recycled goods and building materials.  Children will learn about basic circuitry and simple machines and use LEDs, motors, gears, batteries and switches to add motion and light into their inventions.  We will even do fun and simple electronics projects with the Arduino and other kid-friendly kits!

Crazy Kaiwa Chemistry:  Kaiwa campers - let's "bond" over chemistry!  At Kaiwa, we love science!!  When you try all of our ooey gooey, color-changing, fizzy, explosive, & mesmerizing experiments, you will too!  Experiments might include: slime-making galore, alka seltzer rockets, DIY lava lamps, color changing liquids, fruit DNA extraction, & more!


Sew Your Own Stuffie: Kids can sew!  Want your own unicorn, doll, fuzzy monster, or Minecraft head?  In this camp, kids learn how to turn their original designs for stuffies into patterns for sewing!  Kids choose their own fabric, cut, pin, and sew to leave with a stuffie of their dreams! 

Silk Batik Painting: Silk painting is an ancient, beautiful, and unique art form.  In this camp, learn techniques for using wax batik resist and textile paints on silk to create stunning art to hang or wear!
