BEAM DREAM SUMMER DAY
Weeklong Day Camp for Ages 7-10
LOCATION: Brooklyn New School, 610 Henry St, Brooklyn!
What is Beam Dream Summer Day? A “choose your own adventure” exploration into being an artist and designer!
What do you do at Beam Dream Summer Day? You make projects!
Beam Dream Campers will customize their camp experience by choosing from a variety of hands-on activities developed by artists, designers, filmmakers, musicians, engineers, storytellers, makers, and big idea people from across the creative landscape. During studio time campers have the opportunity to further investigate and develop their skills in a variety of materials such as textiles, electronics, and woodworking under the watchful eye of artists who are passionate about their craft. If you can DREAM IT, you can MAKE IT!
Here are some examples of past projects: Hydraulic arms, electronic mini-mini golf, quiz show buzzers, story wheels, collaborative comic books, dazzle ghillies, grabber claws, crochet-ground, hyper-specific tools, character trading cards, melting face prosthetics, art history remakes, giant wearable puppets, corn-cob backscratchers, cast silicone bugs, recycled plastic bean bag chair, plastic bag turbines, audio barcode cards, paper tapestries, mini storefronts, stringed instruments, computer mice, duct-tape mega-wallets, t-shirt storytelling, character sunglasses, sewing custom shorts, ice cube trays, sgraffito slab ceramic boxes, and a “radioactive” pretzel stand
