August Newsletter:Mid Summer Roundup & Fall Courses
It’s been a while since we put out a proper newsletter to share all that’s new and exciting at ARTiculations. This spring/summer season welcomed the launch of our online shop, introduction of new artist tools and materials, and our best attended summer camp programming to date! With so many exciting things taking place, our poor little newsletter can sometimes take a backseat, but we’re back at it and have lots and lots to talk about!
Our Ontario summers are short (but sweet!) and we think it’s important to make the most of them. Here at ARTiculations, that means slowing down with our weekly courses in favour of focusing on a select few full day weekend workshops and throwing ourselves into our increasingly popular summer camps. We’ve done a roundup of our summer programs for ya- hope you enjoy!
All the best,
Heather, Miki & the ARTiculations family
Summer Camps at ARTiculations
TOY LAND: DIY Toy Fabrication Camp, July 21-25, 2014
Our super amazing Toy Inventors/Fabricators did a great job designing and creating their own toys! Artists sculpted original characters, created molds and cast 3 resin multiples to share amongst their peers…although we created this camp for ages 9-13, we had a lot of interests from our grown ups.
Under The Sea Imaginarium Aquarium, August 5-8, 2014
What a week! Just wrapped up our Installation Camp- We transformed our downstairs studio into an underwater world…in 4 days! These kids worked their butts off and the results are incredible! True hustlers for our #makearteveryday mantra!
Upcoming Summer Camps at ARTiculations
Monday August 18th-22nd, 2014
In this camp, young architects will use their imaginations and creativity to design a Teeny Tiny Treehouse Village for the woodland creature “clients” of Vine Park. Through the course of our camp, young architects will learn about the theory of colour, the relationship between spaces and developing plans and basic construction/assembly methods to complete our project. Ribbon cutting ceremony to follow.
