Welcome to the world of possibility and delight! This Spring Camp we will be using our imaginations to create fantastical and magical lands, creatures, art and more. We will experiment with ways to make our dreams realities as we dig deep to ignite our passions! We will explore art by some of the greats (Eric Carle, Georgia O’Keefe, Matisse and Modigliani) and create creatures that only exist in our own wacky imaginings. While our younger campers head to the park and beach to zoom around, our older kids will explore some of the coolest hidden spots in Los Angeles! For our extended day-ers, we will create ridiculously wonderful characters with the famous Mr. G and quite possibly explore the yuckiest (and funniest) science wonders like snot, goo and more. Don’t miss the fun!!!
