Come to your senses: the curious arts of taste, smell, touch, hearing, and sight

This spring break camp will lead us through the world of our five senses – sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch. Join us for a week of multi-sensory games, delicious experiments, tactile art projects, science experiments, and music adventures.

Touch: We know that art can be beautiful, but did you know that it can also be sticky, squishy, spongy, slippery, mushy, oozy, lumpy, and even scratchy? We’ll work with our favorite textures and materials to create works of art that aren’t meant to be seen, but felt.

Smell. One day we’ll let our noses lead the way, as we investigate the fragrances, perfumes, and stinky stenches of our everyday worlds. What are the scents that make ants march single file through jungles? What are the smells that remind us of our favorite memories? Together we’ll create our own museum of curious smells.

Taste. Why do you crave the things you crave? Do you like foods that are sweet, salty, bitter, sour, or… umami? Together we’ll harvest, prepare, cook, sample, test and savor foods to discover the yummy – and sometimes picky – world of taste.

Hearing. How does music make you feel? What sounds get stuck in loops in your head? What’s the quietest sound we can find? Can you hear through your teeth? Together we’ll explore all kinds of sound – from silence to symphonies – by making our own rhythms, beats and melodies.

Sight. Our sense of sight is the most used of our five senses. But why do certain things seem beautiful to us? We’ll dive into the world of light, color, and shadows, we’ll learn how our eyes can play tricks on our brains, and we’ll travel between 2D and 3D vision to explore the power of seeing.
