SUMMER ART CAMP 

Sky Village NYC is excited to offer another fun and adventurous 2022 Summer Art Camp!​ This year we will be traveling to 8 different countries around the world to learn about some seriously AMAZING artists and the art genre or art movement they made famous!  For example, the origins of Japanese block printing (an art genre), initially began in China but the technique was adopted by Japan and used as early as the eighth century to disseminate texts, specifically Buddhist scriptures. This art genre was made famous by Japanese artists such as Katsushika Hokusai, creator of the iconic print The Great Wave off Kanagawa. One of the great things about Japanese woodblock printing was that it allowed for the duplication of art at a time when original art pieces were the only thing available. This eventually lead to the Shin-hanga movement, a style of Japanese block printing inspired by European Impressionism. 

 

Sounds like a lot of information for a child to wrap their head around, but children are sponges for information -- and we never underestimate the intelligence of our little artists at Sky Village NYC.  This is the beginning of real art education. We don't just share art techniques, we talk about the history behind the development of art as we know it today.  This then becomes their foundation to making bold choices in their journey with art -- and making bold choices is what makes all young innovators successful!

OUR PROGRAM

We are offering a 3 or 5 day camp option for children 5 to 7 and 8 to 12 years old. A variety of arts and crafts will be offered daily with lots of structured playtime offered by YUG Wellness (Yoga), Unlimited Body (strength training), the International Training Center of New York (fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu). Reflection Dance Studio will also be joining for select field trips on Fridays. Both groups will participate in lots of unstructured play time at Ditmars Playground (Steinway St. between Ditmars and 23rd Ave.) and Charybdis Playground (Astoria Park/Shore Blvd.).
