If you are a parent looking at the calendar and finding some blanks spaces that need to be filled for your kids this summer, here are some last minute ideas if you live in Austin or Dallas. Our New World Kids two week program will be running at the Dallas Museum of Art Summer Camps and Laguna Gloria – The Contemporary in Austin. It is the foundational program in creative thinking for 5-7yr olds. Here’s the description from the DMA playbook:
Think you know your ABCs? Think again! In this camp, children will learn a new alphabet that stretches their creativity and offers a new way to see the world. Each day campers will explore an element of the Sensory Alphabet—line, color, texture, movement, sound, rhythm, space, light and shape—through open-ended projects, gallery activities and visits from people in the community who will share what it is like to think and work the way they do. Parents get to join in the fun! New World Kids includes a special Parent Orientation led by museum educators about the cognitive research behind this camp. At the camp’s conclusion, parents are invited to a special exhibition of the children’s work
Kids experience New World Kids as pure and deep fun! As they learn the Sensory Alphabet, they think and work in many media, hear from grownups (and try out their tools!) and practice using the Creative Process. It’s intense — a deep dive into real creativity!
