Summer Camp

 

Welcome to our summer camp program, which offers indoor and outdoor activities, field trips and best of our workshops.

In summer 2022 we offer three different themes for children between 6 - 13 years old, which will alternate through the whole summer program. 

 
 
SHARPEN YOUR SENSES 
 

How does our brain investigate the outside world and make sense out of it? Like agents on a mission, our senses are the manner in which the brain gathers information and interprets the world. So, give yourself a multi-sensory experience in order to stimulate your creative brain! 

 

Short description: 

- Get a glimpse into the world of visual and auditory illusions and learn how they occur. 

- For a tactile experience: play the handpan & percussion instruments, try out digital painting, or airbrush body painting.

- The senses of smell & taste won't be overlooked: do some fun science experiments to investigate your senses.

- How about adding a 'sixth sense' to your sensory set of skills and developing a superpower that will help you become a better communicator? 

- Learn the secrets of body language and facial microexpressions with Charlie Chaplin, Jim Carrey and other great actors & actresses. Act on stage & take part in shadow acting. 

- Explore your voice (recite poems and sing with a microphone, music station and a vocal effects processor, read in front of a small audience, improvisation as a group experience). 

- Visiting museums with interesting exhibitions on this topic, such as the Museum of Illusions, the Museum of Chocolate or visit a bakery in town, the Art History Museum, parks & playgrounds. 

 
 
THE MIRAGE OF ACCESSORIES / Why Details Matter (In Two Parts) 
 

'A designer knows (s)he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.' 

(Antoine de Saint-Exupery, 'The Little Prince')

 

We will look into the awesome world of accessories, train our aesthetic eye and, above all, discover the value of the detail.
