“Imagined Worlds” Upcycled Art Camp For Kids – Week Two

Monday | June 01, 2020 | 10:00 am — 11:15 am

Online Event

In this second of a four-week virtual recycle art camp, housebound kids will create an imaginary world inside using scraps and paper bags hidden in their home recycling bin.

Starting with a cardboard box, virtual campers will create little worlds with images in magazines or that they draw that are based on their interests and things they love , they will add details and decorations from discarded paper. In each session students will be taught transferable skills and create their own UpCycled Maker Kit to use for future projects.

Artist and Environmental Educator, Nancy Judd and the Ecology Center are joining efforts to offer a series of arts-based, interactive virtual learning recycled projects for housebound kids. These classes are child-centered, immersive and interdisciplinary lessons that help children connect with their community and environmental issues while at home.

Nancy includes mindfulness exercises to help students learn to self-regulate in times of stress; movement breaks; standards based learning goals; and strategies to help children cope with stressful Covid-19 conditions (CDC recommendations). Nancy will interact with children as they work– answering questions, providing direction and giving encouragement.
