The Art of Story: Session 1 

Humans live in stories every day and dream in stories all night long. We are all storytellers and story listeners. Storytelling allows us to understand and connect with the world around us and helps us feel like we are a part of something. Students will study and create a variety of story forms. Children’s books, vignettes, oral storytelling, podcasts, poetry, photo blogs, etc. are all possible end products.

Woodcraft: Session 1 
This class is an opportunity to experience the joy of creation, of transforming raw materials into beautiful objects of use. In this class, students will learn to apply basic woodworking tools and techniques to create everyday objects. While doing so, students develop creativity, personal pride in their work, practice persistence, and an appreciation of fine craftmanship. Other skills include creating safety and workflow procedures, tools and techniques, basics of joinery, practice applied math, and basic mechanical drafting.  

Music Exploration: Sessions 1 and 2

This summer we will be studying different genres and eras of music, an array of artists and songwriters, film and movie scores, live music productions, music history, and instruments. We will also be learning the basics of playing the ukulele. In addition, students will have the say in other topics of interest we can explore. 


CANCELLED – Geography: Sessions 1 and 2 – CANCELLED
In 1873, Jules Verne believed you could circumnavigate the globe in 80 days. In 2018, I believe we can do it in nine, figuratively speaking. Students will be virtual tour guides planning a trip for someone going around the world. They will create an itinerary that includes location, prices, and attractions. While planning the tour, students will research historical routes, maps and events. In addition, GPS maps, atlases, and online resources will provide images of current landmarks and other geographic features.  

Science Workshop: Sessions 1 and 2

With the increasing emphasis on science and technology in our world today, it is imperative our students develop skills to acquire and analyze information.  In this science workshop, students will explore their science interests while developing reasoning skills. We will also be discussing current events in science and learning the proper use of lab equipment.  Students will conduct experiments of their own design, analyze the data, and present their findings to the class in a poster session.  


Drawing and Painting: Session 2
This course examines the many forms of drawing and painting that are prevalent in our world today. Students will practice and discuss various styles, including realism and abstraction, and we will investigate how the fundamentals of design and color are use in various creative fields, including animation, architecture, and fashion. 
 

 

ADMISSIONS

Completed applications will be reviewed beginning in January.

Admissions for summer program are rolling and will remain open as long as space is available. Applications received after enrollment is full will be placed in a space available waiting pool.

While summer enrollment does not guarantee acceptance into Assets’ Fall session, it does provide an optimal opportunity for students, parents and the school to evaluate whether or not Assets is an appropriate placement for a particular student.  For Fall enrollment, priority will be placed on enrolling appropriate applicants from the summer program on a space-available basis.
