Each afternoon is a flurry of fun, socially distanced activities that spark kids’ curiosity and creativity.

Prism

Prism

  • Monday-Friday, July 26-30
  • 1-5 p.m.
  • 1st-8th Grade
  • $175

Students explore light and color as they make creative installations within the blank slate of a gallery. Participants get hands-on experience with the ways that light affects color as they work with paint, dye and other colorful materials under different lighting, especially black lights. This adventure into the prismatic realm culminates with a collaborative installation in the gallery. This program is perfect for hands-on learners and provides a safe opportunity for kids to explore and learn art through unconventional means. Grade school art is often limited to small sculptures or flat paintings, but during this program, kids are able to explore color and light in – and get BIG with their creativity.

Biodomes

Biodomes

  • Monday-Friday, August 9-13
  • 1-5 p.m.
  • 1st-8th Grade
  • $175

Participants investigate the concept of biodomes through art making in this outdoorsy program. Biodomes here refer to inter-connected natural ecosystems, like the earth. Learners ponder the relationship of humans to the Earth as they artistically gather data from the immediate natural world at Salisbury University’s national arboretum campus. No art skills are required, but there are plenty of opportunities for more advanced students to refine their abilities. Participants make prints, sketch, paint with watercolors and make their own “biodome.” This program is perfect for hands-on learners who prefer the outdoors and offers a chance to strengthen artistic skills while exploring biological concepts and appreciating the beauty of nature.
