The summer camp ART-SUMMER in Novo-Molokovo will accept both the pre-school age-group (children from 2 to 6 years old), and teenagers (from 7 to 15 years old). The summer in the camp is divided into four sessions, each of which will last 2 weeks and will be focused on environment, journalism, design and theatre respectively.

The camp’s program is based on edutainment principle that implies combination of advanced educational and entertainment practices. During each session the kids jointly with supervisors and experts study theory in a fun way, solve case studies.

The supervisors of summer art programs are people who know how to listen and hear, how to evoke a child’s interest and engage him or her in joint creative processes, forge a relationship of trust between the members of a group. Participation in the summer art program for small kids implies presence of a parent, while teenagers will take part in games, quests and interactive master classes for a whole day supervised by attendants, who, by acting as their true friends and senior peers, will provide general guidance and assistance. The classes will take place from Monday to Friday, from 11.00 to 13.00 for the youngest residents of Novo-Molokovo and from 15.00 to 19.00 for older kids.
