SUMMER ARTS CAMP ST. PAUL at Art Start
From the Arabian Sea to the Indian Ocean
Week I begin your journey in southern India. Bordered by the Arabian Sea to the west and the Indian Ocean to the east, southern India is known for its lush tropical beaches and undisturbed wildlife sanctuaries that house elephants, bengal tigers, Indian leopards, sloth bears, gaurs and more. During Week I create many different kinds of art, sing, compose, dance, and retell stories—all inspired by the cultural traditions and natural beauty of the region.
From the Himalayas to the Ganges
Week 2 travel to northern India and learn how traditional art forms and dances have been transformed by modern day influences. Explore the natural and built wonders of northern India, from the towering Himalaya mountain range, home to many rare animals, to the famous Taj Mahal. Create a one-of-kind musical instrument, a marionette puppet, as well as art work inspired by traditional art forms, skills and techniques.
Pre-school children ages 4-5 years register for “A Start with the Arts” offered morning only both weeks.

Lunch and Snacks
Full day students need to bring a lunch. Lunch is supervised. Children should also bring a morning and afternoon fruit break.
After care is supervised and unstructured so that children can relax. Children are free to bring games, or books and to make art on their own. If we show videos, we like to provide further learning about a culture through documentaries or stories. Extended day students should also bring an additional snack.
Each Friday family and friends of pre- schoolers and school age children are invited to attend ArtStart’s Informance where children share their art work and performances created throughout the week. A flyer will be sent home mid-week announcing the time and place of the Friday Informance.
