Join us as we kick off Summer Camp 2019 in our new space in Avondale Estates! About 5 minutes from our current location in Downtown Decatur, we will be located next to Avondale Elementary in a super awesome new building, with a playground! Our themes will be Video Making, Food Prep with Arianna, and Filmmaking. There will be more of what we are known for, every week, with kids learning multimedia, filming, lighting, stop-motion animation and green-screen filming. But for a few weeks this year, we will also focus on food preparation, gardening and sustainability with plenty of art and crafts and time outside for learning and play!
In Video Making camp, students typically decide on the first day the kind of video they want to make. Kids typically make their own VLOGs, Gaming Videos, Short Films or Stop-Motion LEGO Animations.
Food Prep and Filming with Arianna:
In Food Prep and Filming camp students will have the opportunity to learn to prep food and film the process! Learning with Arianna LaGon how to make all kinds of delicious treats from scratch. Others who may want to film will be involved in creating a VLOG about the process.
In our Filmmaking camp Little film makers will focus on creating their short film. Learning how to craft an interesting script, the fundamentals of filming, lighting and editing and producing their own film by the end of the week.
Hours are 8:30 am to 4pm.

We have a very “creator-focused” environment. The Visual Storytellers Afternoon Enrichment Program at the MSA house is a hub for inspired thought, with lots of rooms, equipment and opportunities to explore creating and manifesting different ideas. We are focused on creating content and working with technology in expressive ways. Producing VLOGs, original songs, photography, stop-motion animation and many other disciplines allows all of our kids to create content that they are excited about. The MSA Kids are telling stories in unique ways and learning how to utilize technology to exercise their creative muscles!

In our break and summer programs, kids will learn the fundamentals of producing and editing VLOGS, making Stop-Motion Animation videos, music videos, DSLR camera operation basics, working with iOS devices, lighting basics, filming on green screen, scoring and editing in iMovie. Kids also experience an entirely different level of creative freedom in our recording studio while recording original songs, learning electronic music production, songwriting and audio engineering fundamentals. Art enrichment is encouraged and promoted with daily classes in art and painting as well as opportunities to draw and create props and backgrounds for some of our productions.
Our themes and projects change from week to week, and kids often find themselves performing all sorts of creative tasks. For instance, we have found ourselves in the studio writing and producing a song during a filmmaking week because the project we were working called for a band to be performing a song at the end. Kids are exposed to many different disciplines all the time depending on the directions of their imaginations.
Snacks are provided daily, with walking field trips to local parks and the Decatur Square. We offer Stop-Motion Animation, Filmmaking and VLOGGING K.A.M.P. throughout the year and during the summer. For full day K.A.M.P. please pack a lunch. Feel free to send additional snacks if needed!
