The Art, Music, Soccer, and Language of Latin America 2011
June 6th-10th, 2011
Mission Statement: To provide in-depth Spanish instruction to students ages 6-10 in Walton County.
Students are encouraged to learn about different parts of the world as we explore the art, music, soccer, and language of Latin America with Ms. Kim and Mr. Eliot. Kim Clauson is the Primary Assistant Teacher at South Walton Montessori Academy and Eliot Valadares is the Spanish teacher at Seaside Middle School.
Eliot will provide individual and group Spanish lessons with the students. Many of the lessons will include Montessori language works and games. We will also read popular children’s books in Spanish and listen to music from various regions throughout Central and South America. We will practice our soccer skills and play Spanish outdoor games throughout the day.
We will investigate our favorite Latin American artists each day. The artists that we will study include Diego Rivera, Jose Clemente Orozco, Amelia Pelaez, Xul Solar, Wifredo Lam, Emilio Pettoruti, Tarsila do Amaral, Joaquin Torres-Garcia, Frida Kahlo, and Fernando Botero. Students will complete one or more art projects per day, creating masterpieces based upon the techniques of the artists that we studied. We will also work together to complete a small peace mural!
We will only accept a maximum of 20 students and this camp is available to students that do not attend SWMA. Feel free to bring a friend! Come prepared to get messy!!! We will provide a snack, but students should bring a lunch every day.
The cost of the camp is $275, plus a $20 supply fee, and the hours of the camp are from 9 am to 2 pm. A 50% deposit to hold your child’s space is due on June 1st, 2011. Please make checks payable to either Kim or Eliot.
