Discover & Celebrate the Power of Creativity Through the Visual & Performing Arts
All of our Imagination Workshops are designed to cultivate four important basic life skills:
-Focus - Communication - Centering Emotions - Flexibility of Mind and Body
We use performing and visual arts as a catalyst for learning these skills and feature a variety of activities to stimulate creativity, brain development, physical fitness, and musical ability.
These activities may include:
Adventure Dance - Using great children’s literature as a springboard to explore movement and dance, this technique invites the child to become an active role in the story.
Antigravity® Fitness Just Kids – Students will swing, spin, jump, and fly as they discover the fun of exercise.
Art - The exploration self-expression using a variety of mediums to create a visual product.
Code of Honor - A set of guidelines to inspire each child to be his or her best self. The basics of the Imagination Workshop code of honor are as follows:
These basics stay consistent from camp to camp however the attributes describing the code follow the theme of each individual camp. For example, in Royal Soiree camp we are “courageous as a knight” and in Animal Kingdom camp we are “courageous as a lion”.
“Ignite the Brain” - Different activities designed to fire up both hemispheres of the brain and help them communicate with ease. This leads to clear thought and action.
My Favorite Things – This Imagination Workshop activity gives each child the opportunity to practice his or her life skills by identifying and communicating the activity or experience, which was most meaningful that day. This daily ritual also becomes a journal art project that represents the theme of the camp. Simply put, the instructor asks the child, “What was your favorite part of Imagination Workshop today?” Child answers.
Musical Games – An introduction to basic music theory using rhythmic and tonal activities that will jump-start any beginning musician.
Theatre Games - Instructors use a variety of playful vocal exercises to stimulate vocal projection, self-expression, and self-confidence. Children will learn to listen, focus, trust, play, and applaud one another while building a respectful theatre community.
Yoga – A mind body technique that utilizes the practice of awareness to focus ones attention on overall health and fitness. This is carried out through simple imagination exercises, breathing, and the use of specific body postures.
