Jardin Orange Artist Residency, in cooperation with OkiDoki Home, Guangzhou Yuyan Education, will host an international art summer camp for children of 6-14 years of age from July to August, 2018. This camp's mission is to cultivate children's independence and self-confidence, improve teamwork and social responsibility,while also allowing them to participate in hands-on art projects and interactive outdoor activities. Summertime is the best time for all children to play, explore and practice new skills!
In the mornings during the week, three experienced art mentors from Jardin Orange will lead the children in various art projects that will encourage the children to express the power of their imaginations, and to explore their creative potential. They will be able to take these projects home at the end to show their friends and family.
In the afternoons, children will learn to skateboard, make sushi and learn more about Nature. There will also be some physical exercise games, such as water fights, summer mazes, and a Maker Paper Circuit course.
In this bilingual camp, all children will have the ability to explore new artistic media and strategies, create novel compositions on canvas, they'll try their hand at using spray paint on various items and will even decorate wooden skateboards for their own. Each child's artwork created during this summer camp will be displayed on the last day in the Jardin Orange Gallery for what is sure to be a truly culminating and validating finale - please come and support the artists!
It's time for the kids to get away from their screens and books and to pursue creative endeavors that will leave them with a meaningful experience and new friends and knowledge. Just as adult artists need time to explore their ideas and develop their skills in a residency, this is the perfect occasion for allowing students a retreat into their own imaginations. A summer art camp is a great way to foment a deeper understanding of one's view of the world, to stay mindful and present and find the beauty around you.
