Are you an artist or a scientist? You could be both, of course. Leonardo DaVinci certainly was! Leonardo was a great artist who painted the famous Mona Lisa. He was also was an eager scientist who studied the flight of birds and insects, drew detailed sketches of them, and wondered how to build flying machines.
Morning Class 8:30 am – 11:45 pm or Afternoon Class 12:45 pm – 4:00 pm For many lifetimes, authors and poets have used heroes and villains to tell us about human struggle and triumph. Can we learn something about ourselves from these characters? In this class, students will delve into the archetypes of the hero
(Afternoon Class 12:45 pm – 4:00 pm) Description coming soon.
(Morning Class 8:30 am – 11:45 pm or Afternoon Class 12:45 pm – 4:00 pm) Science and Art have a unique relationship, from symmetry in nature to the chemical make up of paints. This summer’s class will go through STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) units like exploring balance in science, math and art
Shakespearean acting …It’s theatre, but it’s English Language mastery! After all, he did invent some of the best of it. Using our acting tools: our bodies, our voices and our imaginations we will play medieval to modern stage games each week. Including stage combat lessons (think invisible but deadly daggers), and directing each other in

If you are a scientist interested in art, an artist interested in science, welcome to the world of Leonardo DaVinci who was involved in both. DaVinci used an artist’s creative skills and a scientist’s investigative brain to paint the Mona Lisa and the Last Supper. He was a devoted scientist who studied the flight of
Geosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, and atmosphere are all tangled up! Students are passengers on spaceship earth, as will investigate earth’s systems, cycles, and connections. From fossil finding to writing a silly sandy story, pocket prairie design to soil dissection, testing water to testing rocks—we’ll create, engineer, and learn with environmentalSTEM and nature play!
Working in teams, students will construct and learn to program an autonomous robot, to compete in robotic challenges Block programming, and teamwork will be part of each day’s activities. The final challenge will be centered around programming the bot to navigate an obstacle course. This class has an additional $25 fee for laptop rental and software.
