SEED ARTS CAMP 2016
SEED ARTS CAMP 2016
In 2016 and beyond we are committed to creating & facilitating two bi-annual camps and one event (field trip, community service, fundraiser) per month, with Seed Arts leading the way; three days of self-discovery, laughs, comfort-zone busting and community building! As the year progresses, our goal is to dive deeper. With that intention, Seed Arts' mission is to simply expose campers to creativity and community while planting Eayikes seeds of childlike wonder and acceptance.
We love tribes! It's a big world out there, so any chance we get to replicate a true family-like environment we'll take it. Even though the entire group of campers and staffer feels like one big family, it's in tribes where we make internal leaps. It's in tribes where we find the confidence to share our stories, learn to listen to others', and realize the greatness in our own life experience.
Artlabs are how we expose campers to the creative arts and process. This year we offered DJing, Emceeing, Photography, and Arts & Crafts. Campers learned the basics, with a heavy emphasis on self-expression! Huge thanks to our instructors like DJ SoSoJeff from CultureShockLA for giving their time and sharing their love for the arts.
Campers participate in LifeShops that focus on identifying and developing life skills. This year's Lifeshops consisted of two presentations and a workshop on goal-setting. First we brought out guest speaker Willie to share about his journey from working construction in a small Idaho town to making his way to California and becoming Creative Director of Roadtrip Nation. Then Jason of New Era shared about the work he does, his day-to-day life experience, and insight into the sportswear industry. He also brought fresh hats for the camp! Afterwards we broke off into tribes to self-reflect and set goals for the year.
Our end of camp celebration! All three days of camp build up to the Showcase, where campers share the work they created and lessons learned to invited family & friends. Guests are also asked to participate in camp activities, where it's no surprise to see a parent freestyle rap or soul-train with their kid!
