VIRTUAL

ARTS & HERITAGE

SUMMER CAMP 2020

OVERVIEW

This Camp will provide rural St. Elizabeth children ages 6-11, with arts and heritage instruction as part of a well-rounded education. WARE integrates Foundational STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts/architecture and mathematics) principles to connect subjects which are often perceived as separate. The program’s activities will also increase collaboration among children, teachers, parents and community artisans in fun & interactive ways. 

 

Primary school teachers will be supported to skilfully incorporate folk and traditional arts and heritage to enhance overall curriculum delivery.
