Girls in Charge

On Campus
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 - Artists Week: Monday, June 12 - Friday, June 16
The first week of Girls in Charge will celebrate the artist within each of us. Using inspiration from a diverse group of artists from around the world, we’ll create art using a variety of mediums, from drawing and painting to photography, sculpture, and mixed media! This week will focus on your creative voice and finding your own style. 

Sample Activities: Drawing, Painting, Photography, Sculpture, Mixed Media
Week 2 - Fantasy & Reality: Tuesday, June 20 - Friday, June 23
In our second week of Girls in Charge, we’ll celebrate the storytellers within all of us. We’ll choose some of our favorite stories, pick them apart, and remix them into an entirely new narrative of fact and fiction, fantasy and reality! We’ll bring our new story to life by creating giant sets, costumes, and installation art that result in a walk-through (or crawl, jump, or skip-through) adventure. Get ready to paint, sew, build, imagine, and collaborate to create an epic smashed-up tale of wonder!

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

Week 3 - Amusement Park Los Angeles: Monday, June 26 - Friday, June 30
There’s nothing more magical than summertime in L.A. and in our third and final week of Girls in Charge, we’ll get a jump start on summer by celebrating our favorite city and our favorite summer games. In this week of the program, Girls in Charge will make a giant amusement park, inspired by Los Angeles; the park will include a mini golf course, arcade, boardwalk, and anything else we can imagine! It’ll be a messy week as we build and paint giant sets, construct arcade games, and bring to life our summertime carnival extravaganza. On the final day of the program, we’ll invite the rest of Archer Summer to visit and play, perhaps winning a few prizes along the way!

Sample Activities: Scene Building, 3D Studio Art (Sculpture and Immersive Art), 2D Studio Art (Drawing, Painting, and Mixed Media), Costume Design
