Girls in Charge

For Rising 4th and 5th Grade Students
Week 1 Tuition: $950 
Week 2 Tuition: $760
Week 3 Tuition: $950

We offer week-long thematic programs rooted in creative play and exploration. Students will dive into a variety of imaginative projects culminating in a celebration and showcase of student work.
Week 1 - The Magical Carnival: June 10 - 14
Let’s kick off the summer with a trip to the carnival! In this first week of Girls in Charge, we’ll take inspiration from the iconic Luna Parks to create our very own fantastical art amusement park. We’ll collaborate to create giant rides, games, and attractions, whatever our imaginations can conjure. We’ll design, build, and paint our way to a magical carnival for fellow students to behold!

Sample Activities: Installation Building, 2D and 3D (Sculpture and Immersive Art), Drawing and Painting. 

Week 2 - Nellie Bly and the Trip Around the World: June 17 - 21 (No Archer Summer on 6/19)
EXTRA! EXTRA! Nellie Bly sets a world record by traveling around the world in only 72 days! In this week of Girls in Charge, we’ll learn about, explore, and re-enact the extraordinary expedition by the journalist Nellie Bly. By building sets, making costumes, and designing obstacle course-type challenges, we’ll reimagine her journey around the world. Just like Nellie Bly, we’ll don our journalist hats and create newspapers to capture Nellie Bly’s (and our) experiences. Come for a week of fun and creativity as we travel around the world!

Sample Activities: Costume Design and Textile Arts, Scene Building, 2D and 3D (Sculpture and Immersive Art), Acting, Script Writing, Painting

Week 3 - Artists Week: June 24 - 28 
Week 3 of Girls in Charge will celebrate the artist in each one of us. Using inspiration from a diverse group of artists from around the world, we’ll create using a variety of mediums, from drawing and painting to sculpture and mixed media! This week will focus on your creative voice and finding your own style. At the end of the week, we will display all of the artwork in Archer’s Eastern Star Gallery for all of the community to see!

Sample Activities: Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Mixed Media
