Artists in Schools & Communities
PPS Summer Dreamers Academy
2019 Academy Highlights
Interdisciplinary Teaching Artists Lindsay Woge, Courtney Robson, and Joanna Abel took kindergarten students on an artistic adventure during summer 2019’s Imagination Exploration camps at Camp Arlington and Camp Obama. Each artist infused their campers’ afternoons with an array of creative art endeavors including drawing, painting, collaging, dancing, moving, writing, and journaling.
Teaching Artist Claire Sabatine of Jumping Jack Theater engaged kindergarten students in creative play, drawing, painting, collaging, dancing and movement, and puppet making centered around exploring animals and nature in Creature Camp at Camp Arlington.
Teaching Artist Laura Jean McLaughlin shared the magic of ceramics with second graders in Clay & Mosaic Extravaganza at Camp Obama. Campers created and composed journals, learning daily about a famous artist, and created clay sculptures and rattles, and collaborated to create a camp mosaic to be installed at the school site. What a summer!
