R.W. Norton Art Gallery Summer Theatre Camp - Medieval Madness. Come learn about medieval history and the Knights of the Round Table! June 2-18: Tuesday - Friday (No Mondays) from 8:00am - 12:00pm. The camp is free and available for students who have completed 5th, 6th or 7th grades. 25 students will be accepted for the camp and on a first come, first serve basis.
R.W. Norton campers will be presented with the unique challenge this summer, to work as a contributing member to design and build a cardboard model of London! Students will work with an educator or guest engineer to design working structures of London's most famous landmarks to scale. Campers could decide to create a working scale model of the Longon Eye, Big Ben, or even a moving double decker bus. Cardboard will be the primary building material, but will have access to LED lights, motors, and other tools that will help facilitate the creation of an interactive London city scape. The camp is free and open to students who have completed 5th, 6th or 7th grades. The camp will run Tuesday, July 14 - Friday, July 24 (No Mondays) from 8:00am - 12:00pm.
