Adventures in Art: Mixed-Media Exploration
During this camp, each day will be a creative exploration of a specific art medium: drawing, painting, ceramics, printmaking, sculpture, and/or collage. Each of these media offers wonderful opportunities for artistic exploration and children love to get their hands on a wide variety of materials. We will look at examples from art history to provide inspiration for our projects and we will put our work on display in an art show for parents and other campers at the end of the week.

Welcome to the Maker Movement! Maker Camp is inspired by the maker movement, which brings together people who like to create, make and explore - all while having FUN! Campers in Duke School’s Maker Camp will have opportunities to tinker, question, experiment, try something new, challenge themselves, work in teams, and get a little messy! Join us for a week of “making” awesome projects, virtual "field trips," and connecting with like-minded young makers from around the world on Google+. Maker Camp will inspire your camper to embrace their inner maker, get their hands dirty, fix some things, break some things, and have a lot of fun doing it!
