The Well, ArtWorks and Wave Pool have teamed up to create Camp cARTwheel, a virtual arts and culture summer camp, presented by ArtsWave.
Camp cARTwheel strives to foster creativity, play, empathy and connection, targeting families with children ages 6-12 looking for summer camp opportunities. The virtual camps run the week of July 20-24 (Ages 6-8) and July 27-31 (Ages 9-12).
At the heart of Camp cARTwheel are cARTwheel Camp Kits that come with art-making activities and supplies. There will be an additional “channel” with videos and supporting documents for those who wish to have a self-guided experience. For those looking for a more structured experience, the live virtual camp experience will provide campers with not only a schedule, but a cohort of peers and mentorship.
From dance to mindfulness, from STEM to STEAM, from social justice to art in action, Cartwheel Camp Kits will provide a wide diversity in experiences from Greater Cincinnati’s exceptional art organizations and artists.
ArtWorks Youth Apprentice artists will work with Wave Pool’s resident artist Julia Lipovsky, a multidisciplinary artist and community educator living and working in Cincinnati, on curating and designing the camp kits and will also serve as Camp cARTwheel Virtual Counselors. Area artists and representatives from collaborating organizations will also be featured on the camp “channel” and as guests at the live virtual camps.
Other participating arts organizations include: Art Academy of Cincinnati, ART HAGS, Art on the Streets, Cincinnati Museum Center, Clifton Cultural Arts Center, Contemporary Arts Center, DanceFix Kids, Democracy & Me from WVXU, Indigo Hippo, Kennedy Heights Art Center, Praise Ekeng and Ijo Ugo Performing Arts,Taft Museum, TRIIIBE, Visionaries + Voices, WordPlay, Wyoming Fine Arts Center and more.
