This year’s DUCTAC Summer camp “Imagine”, will be an exciting and magical journey for children; they will realise the limitless possibilities when they use their imaginations to the fullest. We will encourage them to think “out of the box” and apply the philosophy of “anything is possible”, while exploring and experimenting with various mediums in art and design. After the end of the four weeks, children will not only have learnt different methods and techniques, but will be confident that their independent thinking and use of imagination can result in unique and astounding masterpieces.
All our tutors are professional and qualified. The sessions will start off with simple and interesting exercises for camp members, focussed around body movements. These will be both therapeutic and act as “ice breakers” putting the children at ease within their groups and preparing for them for creative activities ahead.
