Mizel Museum’s Creative Journeys Summer Camps Cultivate the Extraordinary Capacity of Kids to Imagine and Innovate

Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) March 12, 2013

Registration is open for Creative Journeys Summer Camps at the Mizel Museum. Creative Journeys are affordable, week-long sessions beginning May 28 through August 12, 2013 for kids in preschool through eighth grade. Camps take place at locations in Denver, Louisville and Boulder.

At Creative Journeys, the arts are a vehicle for hands-on exploration and inquiry about the world around us. Kids of all ages, talents and backgrounds come together with Mizel Museums esteemed teaching artists to make new discoveries and lasting summer memories. This summers artists-in-residence include renowned visual artists, musicians, puppeteers, photographers, dancers, performers and sculptors, including Sheldon Sands, Monica and Tyler Aiello, Adrian Molina, Loribeth Gregory, Ivy Delon, Barth Quenzer, Anne Thulson, Mare Trevathan, Elaine Stanley, Scott Lyon, Kay Casperson, Darin Sullivan and Jacquie Van Horne.

Denvers own multi-talented art educator, poet, storyteller and hip-hop emcee, Adrian Molina, also known as Molina Speaks, and out-of-the-box artist Barth Quenzer will lead “High-Octane Creativity Lab: Big Lives, Big World, Big Ideas” for kids in grades three through six. This ground-breaking camp pairs these two remarkable art educators for an exploration of the power of kids ideas and self expression through visual art, writing and performance. The camp will encourage kids to think of themselves, and for themselves, as innovators with important things to say about the world around them.

Artist Monica Aiello, known for her lush, mixed-media works on panels that blend her deep interest in astronomy, and Tyler Aiello, whose elegant sculptures draw from micromorphology within the organic world of biology, botany and chemistry, return this summer for “All Systems GO! The Cosmos and YOU”, a camp for kids in grades three through six. Kids will discover the connections between space, life on earth and possibly beyond. Campers will investigate humanitys cultural and historical connections to the cosmos, the story of earth and our solar systems formation, the connections to life on our own planet, and the search for alien life. Later in the summer, Monica Aiello will lead “Our Place in Space”, an exploration of our planetary neighborhood through art.

Fine art photographer Dona Laurita leads “Middle School Girls: Downright Awesome & Artful”, to be held at the Mizel Museum and again at her studio in Louisville, for girls in grades six through eight. This special camp is specifically designed to help middle school girls find and express their own individual path in a fun and personal way through creative arts.

Mizel Museum partners with Four Mile Historic Park for “How the West Was Fun!” for kids in grades one through five. Offered twice this summer, kids spend each day learning about Colorados history and making history of their own by experiencing a simpler way of life as they learn and play like Colorado children in the late 1800s. Campers will enjoy hands-on experiences as they learn about different groups of immigrants and the unique experiences of the Westward Expansion. Additionally, the customs, traditions and crafts of Jewish, American Indian, African American, Hispanic and Chinese pioneers will bring history to life.

For preschoolers, treasured storyteller Sharona Grinsteiner leads kids on an imaginative journey through the award-winning picture books of the PJ Library in “Stories That Jump Off the Page!” Children jump into imaginative stories through creative dramatics, art projects, movement and more. Stories camp will be offered in Denver at Temple Emanuel and the Hebrew Educational Alliance, and at the Boulder Jewish Community Center.
