Join us at Marla Baggetta Studio Art Intensive Day Camps integrating art with science, numbers, words, and most importantly – mindful awareness and compassion. Understanding how to think before every decision – whether its deciding how to mix paint to create illusion of light, choosing harmonious electromagnetic waves to positively affect their lives, or simply acquiring non-critical ways to express an opinion – provides the tools to become a delightful teenager and adaptable creative leader.

Creating art helps young children develop imagination, creativity, and self-esteem as well as early math skills, such as, spatial awareness, pattern, and symmetry. At Wildwood Nature School, the focus is on the process of making art — learning about color, line, and shape and experiencing different media — rather than on acheiving a pre-determined “ideal” result.
We offer two classes, each tailored to a particular age group. The classes are drop-off, although parents are welcome to stay if they like.:
Tuesdays 10:00 am – 11:00 am, ages 2-4
Session 1 (October 2 – 30) Art Exploration — Children will explore a variety of media and processes for creating art.
Session 2 (November 6 – December 11, no class Thanksgiving Week) Sticky Fingers — Art created with glue and other adhesives.
Tuesdays 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm, ages 4-6
Session 1 (October 2 – 30) Natural Arts — Children will use items collected on nature walks to paint, print, collage, and create.
Session 2 (November 6 – December 11, no class Thanksgiving Week) Homemade Cards and Gifts — Children will create artwork perfect for giving to family and friends.
I am currently gathering students to put my fall classes together. Please let me know when responding the age of children and area you reside in. If you email me I can send you a basic questionnaire to help with coordinating the classes.
I have taught classes many brownie troups!

Waldorf-Inspired, Outdoor Summer Camp in the Forest (St. Johns/Forest Park) still has space for week of July 24-27!
July 12, 2012
We have filled up all of our summer camps except for the week of July 24-27.
Humming Hive Forest Preschool welcomes children, ages 3-6 years old, to come and experience the magic of the forest for weekly summer camp programs. The school is located on the edge of Forest Park, on a hill, just across the river from St. Johns.
We have a daily rhythm that includes singing, storytelling, snacks of healthy, organic food, circle time, gardening, art and crafts, free play in the forest, rest time, and visiting the 5 friendly chickens. We provide an opportunity for your child to come and enjoy the peace of the forest, not too far from home.
Each week, we have camp Tuesday through Friday, from 9am to 2pm. We are outside all day, rain or shine (usually the sun shines through the summer!). Please visit the website, www.humminghive.org, for more information, or e-mail Ms. Christy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to hearing from you!

This summer, 16 talented young artists will become filmmakers. Working with industry pros and world class gear, they will make movies that change the world.
Registration is now open for Poject Youth Doc 2012 (PYD), and we couldn’t be more excited! By turning the camera inward, teenage PYD participants explore issues important to their lives and the lives of other project members. Each production team sees a project through from inception to premiere. Past projects have focused on diverse topics such as the history of Native American Boarding Schools, flash mobs, deaf culture, and LGBTQ youth. This year, in partnership with Mozilla (Firefox), we are adding training in cutting-edge, interactive media design utilizing technology only being offered to the a handful of media arts programs around the country.
Space is extremely limited, so encourage the young people in your life to apply now to secure their spot!
