Program Description

Journey through the Rainbow World is an immersive one-week program that provides the opportunity for children to engage in and explore meaningful connections between art and design through the diverse colors of the rainbow. Children build creative skills through hands-on making, design thinking, connections to the natural world, and food.

Much more than a typical “art camp,” we provide an interactive atmosphere that encourages the development of sensory skills and creative problem-solving, promotes cooperative work, and stirs the imagination.

The Rainbow World­ is a world of imagination, myth, illumination and promise. The journey begins in the colorless world and ends with the promise of gold! In addition to projects in multiple media, children document their week-long journey in a process book that contains their writing, sketching, and photos of their final projects. These books will serve as inspiration for future endeavors and as a reflection on this special journey.
