We’re about to call it a wrap. Tomorrow is the last day of Bravo’s first summer camp. Bravo’s studio classroom has been buzzing with 8 bright, young creative campers who practiced their art, learned a bit about art history and then made some art history of their own. Some notable Masters were Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Gustav Klimt, Wassily Kandinsky and Henri Rousseau.
Experimenting with color pencil, oil pastels, cut paper, gel markers and watercolor… I think they had some fun.
Once a week for 11 weeks, Bravo School of Art is host to 20+ third grade students from Dewey Elementary School because of a grant funding this program through the Liberty School. With art classes all but eliminated in San Diego City School District, these young students are able to experience the enrichment that the arts provide. Taught by Pamela Calore and Patricia Hyman, these children are inspired and are great artists!
Liberty School is an innovative educational program at NTC at Liberty Station. This program offers at-risk students from San Diego County schools an opportunity to work with resident non-profit and civic organizations on project-based learning that supplements and enriches standards-based classroom instruction. Liberty School Program extends learning to the NTC at Liberty Station campus and engages the resident organizations’ teaching expertise and program offering to students who, without the program, would not have access to such professional instruction.
