Kids can explore the intersection of art and technology in a new summer camp offered by the New Media Gallery.
The gallery is offering a five-day workshop for participants aged eight to 12, running every day from Tuesday, Aug. 6 to Saturday, Aug. 10.
Every day is broken into a discussion section and a workshop section, and the final day of the camp will feature THE DOCK SHOW, a collaborative arts and technology performance or installation that will pull together everything the kids have worked on – visual arts, live performance, video, animation, projection, wearable technology, sound and music, and other experiments.
Day 1 features a discussion on Explorations in Wearable Tech, with a wearable technology studio to follow.
Day 2 opens with a discussion on Exploring Art & Film, followed by a workshop on digital filmmaking on iPads.
Day 3 will feature a discussion on Understanding Video Projection, followed by a workshop in video screening.
Day 4 will start with a discussion called Realizing Virtual Spaces: Real Spaces, followed by a workshop in three-dimensional scanning and design.
The final day will feature a discussion on symbols and meaning, followed by finishing and tweaking for THE DOCK SHOW.
Each day runs from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., and the week costs $275. For details and registration, see www.newmediagallery.ca/programs.
