Grades 3–5 Camps

Kaleidoscope: Art & Science

Monday, July 13 through Friday, July 17, 2020

Is there art in science? Is there science in art? This creative camp will investigate these questions as we explore natural science and all its beauty, diversity, and inspiration. We will look to our outside world and explore color, movement, and sound. Nature serves as our muse in hands-on activities, art projects, and theater games. Our exhibition, Coast to Cactus in Southern California, will be our lab and inspiration. Come discover the beauty of natural science.
