July 13, 2020 to July 17, 2020
09:00 AM until 12:00 PM
Daily class from July 13th to 17th, 9am-12pm
Your camper will take a journey across the globe during Cultural Camp. Campers will learn about the country of Burundi while exploring various visual and performing arts games and activities. Campers will participate in three 45 minutes classes through out the morning with our teaching artists.
Because of its history and geographic location Finland’s culture has been influenced by adjacent areas, various Finnic and Baltic peoples, as well as the former dominant powers of Sweden and Russia. There is an ideal in Finland of self-sufficiency and many Finnish people live a very rural life. Many Finns are emotionally connected to the countryside and nature, and Finnish art strongly reflects this relationship. This is relationship is also reflected in fashion which is designed with simplicity and sustainability in mind. Come explore Finland’s expansive geography home to reindeer and snowy owls.
This camp will take place on Zoom. A link will be sent to families a few days before camp begins.
Each week of our Fashionable Finland will have different activities.
Please have markers, crayons, pencils, erasers, scissors, rulers, tinfoil, and cardboard available for your camper. Supply kits for other materials needed will be available for curbside pick up at Durham Arts Council the week before camp. If for any reason you don't have any of the above supplies please let us know and we can include it in your kit.
