My son LOVES art....anything creative really. Last year he attended Emerge Summer Camp for 3 separate programs. He loved them all.
His favorite week was called Claymation. The kids made little clay figurines, props, and sets. Then they directed and produced flims (using snap shots). At the end of the week they had a film showing where all the movies were shown. Each child was given a DVD copy of all the films done that week.
Another week he attended was pottery. They did pinch pots, used the potters wheels, glaze, painted, etc. Really anything and everything you could think of with clay. My son saved many of his pots and wall hangings and gave them to various family members for Christmas presents last year.
And the last week he attended was a mixture of tons of different stuff. One day they tie dyed tshirts. They did silk screening. Made their own board game. Did some clay work. And other projects I now can not recall.
The sessions are "all day, " which is 9 am to 4 pm with an hour lunch (they bring their bag lunches). But you can pay extra to drop off early (7:30 a.m.) or pick up late (5 p.m.) The cost is wonderful in my opinion....$125 a week!
My son enjoyed himself so much last year that he plans to attend a couple weeks this summer as well. And he chose to have his birthday party there as well just a few weeks ago (also a fabulous deal).
Update On Jun 07, 2008: The two pictures are actually from my son's birthday party this year but they used the same equipment and room last summer (and this summer) for clay projects :0)
