Discovery Arts Camp | President’s Week Edition
February 19-21, 2018 | 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM
A one-of-a-kind here in North County…an Arts Camp designed just for children with special needs!!! Working together with The SHINE Project Foundation and the Coastal Music & Arts Foundation, we have a team of talented specialists slated to help open up a world of creative discovery. Campers will be able to experience and play music, move…dance…sing and create art together in a safe and nurturing environment.
Each day Campers will rotate through 3 Creative Learning Centers…Music, Art & Dance…we’ll also incorporate a Snack & Sensory Break. Our instructors are working professionals in their respective fields with experience serving children with special needs. The goal is not only to learn ‘about’…but to experience through ‘doing’ and encourage discovery…allowing the creative within to shine!
SPACE IS LIMITED…SO REGISTER SOON
PARENTS NOTE: There will be a minimum 2/1 Ratio of Campers to Teachers/Aids. We will reach out to every family after you register to determine any specific needs and requests. We’ll do our absolute best to accommodate everyone that is interested, however, in some instances we may require students to bring their own aide/caregiver. To get specific questions answered prior to registration, please email Cheryl Williams, [email protected]
Here’s a little info about our Discovery Arts Camp Instructors:
Kayliana Reeves is a dance instructor/choreographer specializing in hip-hop. She grew up performing on dance competition tours and recently finished a dance instructor certificate program with Mira Costa College. She has a wide range of dance experiences in performance and guest-teaching venues, as well as self-produced videos online. Miss Kayliana has been teaching standard hip-hop classes and some special needs classes at Ariel’s Dance Studio in Oceanside for the past 3 years. When asked about teaching at Discovery Arts Camp, she said, “Few people know that I am a high-functioning special needs person myself. I have a joint/muscle condition called Hypertonia. I understand how important it is to focus on ‘ability’ instead of ‘dis-ability’ and the simplest route of inspiration is to have fun!”
The Artcadian is an innovative art studio in South Oceanside, and they are bringing visual arts fun to Discovery Arts Camp. Instructors focus on projects that are multisensory, fun, and creative. Their studio offers classes for students of all ages and is always welcoming to special needs students.
Jacob Sherreitt is a Southern California native with nearly 20 years playing music. He teaches K-6 music enrichment at Paul Ecke Central elementary and serves the whole student population, including students with physical and mental disabilities. Last summer Mr Jacob worked for Encinitas Union District’s Extended Year Program as an instructional aide in a Special Needs classroom and led music enrichment activities several times a week. When asked about teaching at Discovery Arts Camp, he said, “I think music is at its best when it is interactive, enjoyable, and inclusive.”
