Last Week of the Summer
August 27 to 31
Watercolours by the Water (SPACES
9:00 AM to 12:00 PM • Ages: 9 to 12
relaxing week of observation and outdoor adventure, this camp focuses
on using watercolours and aquarelles to capture natural landscapes.
We'll begin with an introduction to the language of watercolour,
including stretching paper, exploring wash resist techniques and the
importance of translucency. On sunny days, we'll pack up our supplies
and walk to different locations where we'll work to capture the
natural beauty of the ocean, ponds and parklands. Most days will
begin with reading from a novella as students sketch.
Teen Writers Outside (SPACES STILL
6:00 PM to 9:00 PM • Ages: 12 to 18
Our surroundings can influence our
writing, either directly or indirectly. During this week we'll
venture outside the Lyceum to write in the streets, parks and
businesses of our community. This camp provides students with a
motivating and encouraging writing environment where they can explore
their writing interests as individuals within a supportive workshop
format. Lyceum staff will assist with editing tips and strategies to
overcome writing blocks.
