Day 1 - Science + Engineering + Math

Today is the day to see how the sciences and math go together in perfect harmony. What you often don't think about is that a lot of art has math in it. Plus science and engineering has some art elements to it too. We will be making Fibonacci number art as well as a Thaumatrope. Which is an optical toy that was popular in the 19th century. A disk with a picture on each side). This day is all about making, math and the science of optics.

Day 2 - Technology + Arts

Word of the day is: digital. There are many forms of art and some of the most up and coming are digital forms. This is the day to explore that possibility and see what it has to offer. Taking pieces of art from the galleries collection we will be making our own captions for the images, thereby making our own memes. There will even be a bit of friendly competition for the best caption. Using a free online website we will be making our own digital art, pixel art. Which can then be made into short form animations or gifs.

Day 3 - Music

We at the Art Gallery of Windsor have created a partnership with the Windsor Symphony for the final day of this camp. Come and learn about music and sounds with the Windsor Symphony and do some music based art activities. The focus will be on the sounds and functions of music. We will be making a Musical Mosaic and creating a piece of art using an online program and creating our own musical pieces.
