Flags have been used throughout history to show our allegiance to a cause and to protest injustice. Join teaching artist Veronica Olivares & Andres Duque in a day of flag making using fabric, paper and felt. We will talk about how flags have been used in social justice movements throughout history, what makes a strong message, and then design our own flags.
Social Distancing & Mask Use:
For in-person camps we will be limiting camp size to 6 children per classroom, following social distance guidelines within the classroom, doing temperature checks upon entry, as well as sanitizing frequently. Children are required to wear a mask inside (we will go outside for snack). Classrooms are set up with 6 stations, each one at least 6 feet apart. This class will be taught using social distancing measures. Students will be asked to wear masks and stay at least 6 feet apart from the instructor and other students. The Arts Council will be following current standards, including temperature checks upon entry to the building. Supplies will not be shared, and class size will be limited. Children who show any COVID-19 symptoms will not be allowed to enter the building. Please note – if your child is unable to follow social distancing requirements, we may have to ask them to leave the camp, as it endangers other campers, staff and faculty.
WHAT TO BRING
Snacks and beverages are not included. Please send your camper with a mid-morning snack, beverage/water bottle, with a box or bag to bring projects home in, with their own mask, and dressed in clothes that can get messy. Please note that we do not have on-site refrigeration. We recommend not sending any valuable items to camp as they can get lost. When possible, please label items with a child’s name. Campers will be required to wear masks when entering the building and when walking through hallways.
