Session 3: Painting for the 21st century learner
July 5th-7th *Special 3-Day Camp
This camp is designed for incoming 1st-3rd Grade Students. We'll be following the basic elements of 21st century design (Inspiration, Design, Creation, Reflection and Presentation) as we design Mixed-Media projects using the environment as our theme.
- Inspiration: Using tech resources and the environment around us, students will work through the process of gathering ideas and organizing them within a personal sketchbook
- Design: Using their inspiration, students will draw out their ideas and include the media they'd like to use
- Creation: Students will then use mixed-media techniques and materials to create student paintings that incorporate 3-D elements
- Reflection/Presentation: Reflect on what students made, present to other studio mates.
Using the above design process, students will learn to adapt this kind of problem solving to other aspects of their life, including subjects within school and in extracurricular activities.
