Traveling Artist Camp
Survey the world of art by carving totem poles in the Pacific Northwest, crafting Aztec masks in the heart of Mexico and experimenting with the artistic traditions of history. In this thrilling camp, students get creative examining the STEM processes that make art possible, like the delicate balance of water tension involved in Japanese Suminagashi paper or the cultural traditions and paleontology of Chinese -dragons. To develop this camp, PCS Edventures teamed up with an artist and art educator in order to embody the true insight of a creative mind. In Traveling Artist Camp, explore the different cultures of the world through the depth of their history, legacy and incredible works of art!
The Traveling Artist Camp includes all of the curriculum and materials needed for summer camps, after-school environments, and classroom enrichment time.

Each kit is shipped in a sturdy Sterilite tub that can be reused to store materials during camp and throughout the year. The page pockets included in the kit are designed to eliminate the need for making full sets of copies for each group of students. As they write with dry erase markers on the heavy-duty plastic, the original copy stays untouched underneath, ready for the next group as soon as the pocket is wiped clean.
