A Summer Arts Camp for ages 6-13 will be offered from 9 am-noon, July 9-13, at Eastport Arts Center. In keeping with the camp’s ‘Go Global’ theme, campers will receive a passport to use for their global itinerary. Activities will include printmaking, 3D construction, world music instrument making and dance moves, flags, banners, crowns, games and sports. Camp leaders are Ann Cannizzaro, educator and Willy Claflin, musician and storyteller.
Cannizzaro combines a love for art with experience in education. She enjoys helping children discover new skills, ideas, and mediums through artistic endeavors, and works hard to plan and organize activities that are challenging and fun at the same time. Cannizzaro has a Bachelors Degree in Art Education from the University of Vermont, with a minor in Biology; a Master’s Degree in Literacy from UNE; and a Master’s degree in Educational Media and Design Technology from Full Sail University.
Claflin, a San Francisco-based professional performer, is often called a “one man festival.” He delights his audiences with a mix of music, fantastical tales and a flair for the absurd. Assisting with the storytelling and song-spinning is Claflin’s sidekick, Maynard the Moose, an appealing and animated puppet.
Camp fee of $15/day or $70/week includes materials and lunch; additional siblings can register for half-price. Space limited; to preregister, please email Alison Brennan, EAC’s Education & Outreach Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at (207) 454-8822. The Eastport Arts Center is at 36 Washington Street, Eastport and at http://www.eastportartscenter.org, and is handicapped-accessible.
