About RAZ Art Projects:

RAZ Campers get to experience how much fun it is to capture the essence of a story or tradition within an artwork project that can become a keepsake. This week they made snowglobes!


Our lives are made special by making memories through cultural traditions which can represent many things.



WEEK 1 - ART WITH STORIES CAMP, DEC 20-24:

Campers heard holiday stories by art teachers of miracles, magic & meaningful lessons from different cultures.


Based on these kids made projects using mediums of painting, building, and sculpting.


WEEK 1 - Art with Stories: Each day was a new story & many magical projects:

Day 1

Hi Everyone, we had a fun first day with many projects, based on an Italian story, The Bell of Atri.


Monday (Diversity) The Bell of Atri, an Italian story; projects included making a horse!

Life Lesson: It’s best to be kind & fair towards each other, even animals


TUESDAY (New Year) King of the Forest, a Chinese popup book story; projects included an animal calendar

Day 2

We read a Chinese Story, The Fox and The Tiger. Campers learned a few life lessons from it.


DAY 2 We made:
  • a calendar with 12 Chinese animals,



  • sculpted with Magic Clay,


  • made a pop-up book and


  • experimented with watercolors.



WEDNESDAY (Christmas) The Mexican Legend of Poinsettias story


Day 3

Kids made ingenious artworks from recycled objects.



Life Lesson: If you put all your love and care into something not so pretty you can still make it very special and important.
THURSDAY (Kwanzaa) The Feast, African story
Life Lesson: Each of our actions, no matter how small, is important and affects the whole world


Day 4 Children "traveled" to Africa and made a lot of projects:
  • African Kente cloth design and

  • tie-dye shirts


  • a self portrait with collage, based on Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, and learned about expressing our happiness and pain in art.



And RAZ participants played a game to encourage teamwork and patience.
