"We provide opportunities for children to discover, explore, cre- ate and have fun in their unique art-making while taking an idea and making it their own," Fernandez says. "Each day we have a new proj- ect that is part of the week's larger theme." For those kids interested in creat- ing videos, check out Spark Media Project. According to Director of Education Mary Ellen Latropoulos, Spark offers five media produc- tion classes this summer for kids 7 through 15. Using 21st century tech- niques in digital media, kids develop cutting-edge skills. In some classes, older teens develop professional skills while honing their creativity. If the kids do not want to spend an entire week at camp, programs like Aerophone that offer sessions only once or twice a week might be worth a look. Check with your local school district and area recreation departments for details on programs availability. Whatever artistic talent you would like to help nurture in a young artist's life, there's most defi- nately a camp out there just for it!
