It's that time of the year again at ALEC, time for Summer Camp. The Brashear Association will be hosting its yearly series of workshops and activities at the Allentown Learning Engagement Center. We will be offering a variety of activities as follows:
CAPA Portfolio/Boot Camp [June 18-21, 25-28] - This will be specifically for current 4th graders that will be in the 5th grade come the beginning of next school year who interested in attending CAPA (Pittsburgh Creative and Performing Arts School). We will be focusing on life drawing skills with a strong emphasis on portraiture and nature. Those attending will also learn the language needed in fine art as well as color value, mark making, design concepts and sculpture. If you have an artistic 4th grader that is displaying a passion for visual art, this is something you definitely should consider.
Tech Camp with YMCA Creator Space [July 9-12, 16-19] - The YMCA Creator space is a great camp for science and engineering minded youth, or those who are curious bout it. The YMCA Creator Space will be focusing on wiring, circuitry and design to create some awesome gadgets that will stimulate motor function and spacial mathematical thinking.
Venture Outdoors [July 23-26, 30 - August 2] - Venture Outdoors will be featuring a family kayaking lesson. Participants will learn how to properly kayak and even get a chance to show what they've learned on the water!
Special Note: We are aware that our flyer that has been going has the cut off date to May 25th, we are extending our sign ups to 6/14. We are open 10am-5pm to either walk in and fill out a form, or turn in the application you've collected. We are so excited to some returning youth and to meet new faces.
