Winter is still going strong in beautiful Omaha, Nebraska. The threat of more snow is very real as the wind whips across the Nebraskan plains. We can probably all agree that freshly fallen snow is beautiful. Some people even love the icy chill that winter brings and the hot chocolate that is held between two mittened hands but there has to be a light at the end of this wintery tunnel, right?
Think about the smell of sunscreen, the taste of chlorine water, the sound of seagulls at the beach, and even the sight of freshly ripened watermelon. Now do you still wish it was winter?
Summer is on the top of the planning list for the 402. Although it feels bleak out now, the sun will be here before we know it.
When we think of summer we think of activities and with activities comes summer camps and classes. The 402 is excited to announce the summer camps/classes that will be offered the Summer of 2015. Check out the completed list below:
CITY DANCE: Weekly, drop-in classes for dancers who have an interest in ballet and/or creative movement. City Dance is the perfect class for aspiring young dancers. This class is currently offered every Tuesday and Wednesday from 10AM-12PM.
PERCUSSION FOR PRESCHOOLERS: A camp inspired by those little table top drummers. Students will learn the basics of keeping a beat and collaborating with others. This camp will take place the beginning of June.
ELEMENTARY TO MIDDLE SCHOOL
FAMILY TREE THROUGH SEASONS: Students will learn how to create a masterpiece using paint and pictures of family members. Each participant will walk away with the knowledge of their family tree as well as a physical representation. This class will be offered in July.
HERO ACADEMY: Students will learn how to build their very own hero from scratch. Each participant will learn character development as well as technical drawing skills in this camp. This camp will take place at the beginning of June.
VILLAINY 101: Students will learn how to build their very own villain from the ground up. Not only will participants think about technical illustration skills but they will also be asked to figure out what makes this villain evil or maybe not so evil. This camp will take place at the beginning of June.
MIDDLE SCHOOL TO HIGH SCHOOL
SILKSCREEN PRINTING BASICS Students will learn how to create their very own design that they will then print on t-shirts, sweatpants, tote bags and whatever else. Each participant will walk away with the ability to prep and clean their screens. This camp will take place in August.
NATURE EXPOSED: This class will take place in Elmwood park. Every aspiring artist has drawn trees and that is what this class is all about. The stepping stone to being a good figure drawer is to first understand trees and how they exist in space. This class will take place on every Saturday in August.
DRAWING INTENSIVE: This camp is geared to those in high school who want to pursue art in college. This camp’s environment is very similar to the environment of higher education art classes. Students will be assisted with their technical skills as well the patience and ability to draw for long hours at a time. This camp will take place in June.
OUTDOOR PAINTING: This class will take place in downtown Benson. Students will paint the scene as well as the day to day of the Benson Community. This class will take place twice in the month of June.
Registration for these camps & classes are coming soon!
