The Kravis Arts camps are available to students in grades one through twelve. It is the intention of the Fine Arts Office to offer three camps this coming summer: Elementary, middle school and high school. Below is a brief description of each camp:
The elementary arts camp is an arts integration model that incorporates art at the core of the curriculum. Students learn about a different theme each year through the lens of the arts. Throughout their day, the campers move from visual art, vocal and instrumental music, drama and movement classes. Each class provides hands-on experiences relating to the camp-wide theme. Past years explored such themes as "Animals in History of the Arts", "Earth, Air, Wind and Fire: the Classical Elements", "The Renaissance in the Arts". The theme for 2016 is "Then and Now"
The high school art camp is geared to the serious visual art student interested in preparing a mature portfolio of work. The goal is to prepare the student to acquire scholarships and to excel in the arts. Participating students are encouraged to be individuals with a drive and a motivation far beyond their peers. In 2015 the camp will be held on the campus of the University of Tulsa and provide instruction in drawing, painting, ceramics, intaglio and etching, jewelry, photography and light sculpture making.
The middle school art camp will offer drama, dance, visual art and band. Students participating in art camp will choose two offerings (visual art, drama, dance). Like it's high school counterpart it will stress the development of the portfolio. Band Jam will be a fun filled two weeks of exploring instruments of the band, music fundamentals, and group dynamics.
Both certified arts teachers and university professors will be involved in the design of this new program.
