Again this year, PIE partnered with The Vinalhaven School and local artists to offer fun-filled, summer camps. We were able to offer 3 this year where 80 students participated in ArtSCAMP, TheaterSCAMP & MusicSCAMP – see below. The success of this program went beyond our dreams – we will definately be back next summer!
ArtSCAMP was offered this year for two weeks. The goal is to foster a fun and educational environment for children to engage in the creative process using a variety of techniques and materials. Participants ranging in age from 4-12 were immersed in projects to develop style and technique.
Teacher Sarah Boyden led the groups through activities including painting, line drawing, paste paper making, clay, faux stained glass, encaustic and so much more! There was a good dose of fun, and participants went home with a collection of their own work. Thank you Sarah!
This year, PIE also was able to offer TheaterSCAMP. Younger students ages 5-7 played theater games, developed skits and make their own costumes. Our teacher, Blake Reidy, spent time teaching participants about the basics of the stage and how cooperation is integral to any production. Silly group skits were performed for parents on the last day of camp. Another very successful & fun summer camp – thank you Blake!
Our third PIESCAMP was MusicSCAMP. MusicSCAMP was also a new addition to programming this year. Students ages 8-12 participated in camp, with the focus on African Drumming. Teacher Bill Trevaskis led the group through basics of rhythm, percussion and singing while playing. A wonderful group performance was put on at the end of the camp. We can’t wait until next summer – thank you Bill!
