Join us for 5 days of exploring, inventing and art making! Over the course of the week, we will explore the big wide world beneath our feet. We will discover tiny creepy crawlies and make them HUGE, invent suits that will take us to the bottom of the ocean, and become archaeologists, making ground breaking discoveries! We will look at burrowing animals, giant squids, root vegetables, submarines and so much more. In addition to the major daily projects listed below, each day will also include interactive discussions and activities in our Galleries and many more hands-on projects in our studios exploring the principles of art and design, colour theory and various historical and contemporary art-making techniques.

Monday: Ground Breaking Archaeology
Campers will learn about how fossils are formed and dig for their own fossils! Based on the fossils they find, they will dream up and sculpt their own Dinosaurs!

Tuesday: Bugs and Microorganisms
Campers in the 4 to 6 age group will create their own puppets based on bugs and microorganisms looked at in class and collaborate to make a puppet show theatre.
Campers in the 7 to 12 group will choose a microorganism and make it HUGE! After learning about the microscopic beings crawling around in our soil they will make a little BIG bug using papier mache and paint.

Wednesday: Submarines and Deep-Sea Diving
Campers will learn about the history of diving suits and the inventions that brought humans down to the bottom of the ocean. They will invent and create their own helmets to explore the deep blue sea.

Thursday: Burrowing Animals
Campers will design an underground den for a burrowing animal of their choice using drawing and printmaking techniques.

Friday: The Colourful Coral Reef
Dive into the warm shallow waters of the colourful coral reefs and be inspired by the rainbows of coral and tropical fish! Build up layers of different collage materials to create your own vast coral reef.
