Summer is in full swing and we’re back with our annual Ultimate Guide to Summer Camps to save your life (as much as we love our kids, they drive us nuts sometimes – especially, working parents). Summer camps are your best bet when it comes to keeping your child engaged in an environment where they can learn and thrive that isn’t as demanding or challenging as school. We don’t have the US style of camps where our kids can learn camping and watersports but Karachi is host to a plethora of fun programmes. Go through this guide to decide the best one(s) for your child – hurry up though, places fill up fast!

Artrageous Summer 2019

The program includes acting technique, movement, improvisation and provides a unique opportunity for students to fully immerse themselves in the acting studio.

3. All About Photography

Alongside, they shall be taught the basics of light, shadow, exposure and composition and how to handle basic camera equipment and how to take a great photograph! They will also learn how to use their own camera to the best of its capabilities.

4. The Art of Storytelling (11 -15 years)

This course shall open a new horizon and sharpen the visual mind into words. Writing tips and fun filled activities will help our young writers explore their imagination in a new dimension. We shall be tackling the importance of sensory observation while writing and describing places and people. We’ll also talk about the importance of reading. Students will write about what they observe in day to day circumstances opening up a Pandora’s box of wonders in words.

5. Speak Out (11 – 15 years)

This course has been specially developed for children that have a mammoth fear of public speaking. Those that don’t want to get up in front of a crowd because they are scared of being judged.  We shall help them polish their skills as public speakers and presenters. We at IVS believe it is all about building confidence, as students will learn tons of tips and techniques that will make the topic selection, speech writing and delivery process much smoother.

6. The Animation Board (11 – 15 years)

This is a fun workshop in which the students will learn the technicalities and coding of animation using computers. They will learn how to develop storyboards and turn ideas into short animated films. Alongside, they will learn to create their own 3D animated movie from start to finish, learning the fundamentals of moving objects in a 3D space, animating characters, and editing keyframes along a timeline.

7. Portrait in Series (11-15 years)

Creating from imagination is exciting, getting to know the real world is even better. This course teaches students to create a piece of art with realistic approach and grooms the artistic perception of participants. We shall nurture their intuitiveness with careful and deep observation, so they learn to understand the subject better and not to miss the delicate details that could enhance their work as an artist.

8. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

This workshop aims to inculcate young minds to value the three R’s (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) and use the items that are thrown away everyday as trash and create something useful therefore giving it a new life and reducing their carbon footprint. Activities would include learning how to reuse paper through different techniques for eg: Papier-mâché and cut & fold. Mindful usage of cardboard rolls, plastic bottles and tin cans.

9. Retouche’

This course is ideal for helping participants to enhance their photographs using different features of Adobe Lightroom. Course will include editing of the photographs, improving photos and fixing mistakes from their shoot. Photo editing is a natural complement that adds to kids’ expressive capabilities and can even inform how they shoot their pics.

10. Drawing Skills for All

Children love to draw if they are given a conducive environment. That is what this course provides. The sequence of lessons builds on an alphabet of shape to analyze and break down what they see. Development of perceptual and analytical skills increases critical thinking and problem solving. Easy and quick artistic success also builds self-esteem, and this confidence is transferable to other life areas.

11. Burlesque

The Watercolour Workshop is Designed with beginners in mind, with a total of 10 fun watercolour painting class projects that enhances their faculty of self-expression.

13. The Acrylic Canvas

Acrylic paint is a great medium for beginners because it is relatively inexpensive, water-soluble, quick-drying, versatile, and forgiving. If you are not happy with an area you’ve painted, you can let it dry and paint right over it in a matter of minutes. Learn the tricks of the trade, and you can soon embrace your inner Leonardo da Vinci, Vincent van Gogh, or Rembrandt using a forgiving medium these artists never knew when they created their great works.

14. Pastel Blend

Oil pastels, with their rich colours and expressive line quality, are a favourite medium to use with kids. And the key to getting the best results with any oil pastel lesson is layering.  The pastel colours are bright and pure, they are soft and easy-to-blend, and the colour goes on smoothly. The kids will start with few still life paintings initially and progress to more advanced tasks.

15. Soulful Strings

For learning music, one needs to start young. Then observational and analytical skills, focus, concentration and discipline can be nurtured effectively. With our meticulously tailored program, taught by professional instructors, we channel that boundless energy of your child into something useful, constructive and rewarding.

16. Voice of Artrageous

Sing and perform the songs you love! Back by popular demand, the artrageous summer camp provides an opportunity for students to learn popular chords while focusing on vocal production and stage presence with their singing. Students will feel like Pop Stars by the end of the course!

17. Contemporary Dance

What participants learn in our dance classes will go beyond movement and they can develop their own style.  The course builds up increased self confidence as there is a feeling of accomplishment after each class. In this introduction to modern dance, students explore various movement styles, spatial relationships and rhythmic patterns in a structured class environment.

18. Super Heroes & Aliens

Illustration is a field that is ripe with the demand for fantastical designs. Comic books, TV, video games, and genre books in general require not just an image supplementing the text – but a thought-out concept design of the fantastical characters, beasts, props and backgrounds. This course does just that – not only provide with the tools to draw, to visualise your concepts but to understand the context and theory of said concept designs.
