This week we welcomed back some vacationing campers and we said goodbye to Ms. Briana who left us a week early to build houses in Puerto Rico with her youth group. We will miss her but hope she has a wonderful trip, safe travels!
Camp is almost over and we are finishing up projects and getting ready for our Gallery Exhibit and Closing Event on Thursday 8/16.
Attached is our invitation, we began giving them out at dismissal today. Please feel free to bring friends and family. There will be plenty of work on display from all of our campers including their own original music.
Our last week will be very exciting as we will be exploring paper crafts and hand die cutting. We have saved the most exciting workshop for the last day! The Long Island Motion Picture Arts Center and Museum will help our artists create their own stop motion animated short film. We are all really looking forward to see how this movie magic is made and collaborate to make some ourselves.
In this workshop, children can be hands-on as they film a scene of stop-motion animation. We bring the movie experience to the children as they use fun, pose-able figures on a film set. Children will learn and experience the techniques that they use in Hollywood with such classic movies like King Kong, and the works of Tim Burton. They will also see how the process of stop-motion animation is created. Using a digital camera and movie lights, their animation is recorded one frame at a time, just like the professionals do in Hollywood. At the end of the workshop, the children will see their finished movie.
On behalf of Ms. Briana, Ms, Erin, Ms. Geeta and myself, I would like to thank all of our families for participating. It has been a fantastic first season and we hope to see many of you next year.
Looking forward to seeing everyone on Thursday. Here are some fabulous pics from this week at Westbury Summer Arts Camp.
