Some Scholarships Available

   July 10 - 14, 2017
Art in the Great Outdoors: Grades 1 - 3 Cost $100
Nature will be our classroom! Art and nature will come together as we explore the garden, creek and woods near the school. Let’s study like the famous scientist and artist Leonardo Da Vinci. He learned by careful observation and sketching scientific specimens.

Another famous French artist Claude Monet painted outdoors and was careful to notice the light and color around him. Let’s get outside and paint the beautiful colors of summer in Indiana!

Participants will create a variety of artwork to include a handmade sketchbook/journal, art with botanical accent, watercolor nature scene and woodland inspired collage and sculpture The time frame and format of this class will provide the perfect setting for in depth study not present in the regular school curriculum.

Course instructor, Mrs. Johnson is an experienced art teacher and certified Master Gardener and is anxious to share her love of art and nature with children.

Students will be utilize 3D CAD (Computer Aided Drafting) models and apply 3D CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) to produce the program code to run modern Computer Numerical Control machine tools. They will then machine their creations under the close supervision of faculty professionals. Students will also get to tour a modern manufacturing facility.

This camp will provide young people with an understanding of how modern technology is used to develop, design and manufacture products to solve 21st century problems. Students will engage in a STEM focused hands-on problem solving approach for a design problem. In addition, the student will get the opportunity to design and machine a product of their own.

Students will be engaged in the creative design of 3D CAD (Computer Aided Design) models to create a race car. They will then see how products can be designed and created using additive manufacturing (3D printing) with geometries that are not possible with other technologies. Students will also get to tour a modern design facility and 3D printing lab.

This camp will provide young people with an understanding of how modern technology is used to develop, design and manufacture products to solve 21st century problems.  Students will engage in a STEM focused hands-on problem solving approach for a design problem. In addition, the student will get the opportunity to design and print a 3D polymer product of their own.
