Our Children’s Programming is organized by art teacher Corinne Simmers and will will be comprised of panels and workshops where parents and kids can work on creative projects together.
Art Supplies, Games, and other materials will be available during the panels, no need to bring your own (unless you’d like to).
Children’s Programming 2013
“The recklessness of science gave birth to you, Godzilla. Why do you appear before us?”
This year at Intervention we invite children ages 4-12 (or older in some cases) To join us for a weekend of monster molding, folding, smashing, and bashing! This will be a weekend project where we will begin by creating our monsters on paper, sculpting them in playdough, and then battling them until there is one monster remaining!
Friday- “The Drawing Board”
Stop in on Friday and join us for the creation of our monsters! We will plan and plot out our creations on paper and even create our own trading cards for them!
If not really into the whole monster creating we will be offering an array of board games and card games so that your child can come and unwind.
Saturday- “It’s Alive!”
10:00 am -12:00 pm- During this allotted time we invite children to come and create with us. We will be trying our hands at making playdough, and glow sticks to aid us in our monster sculptures. Once our playough is set we will begin our sculptures of our monsters so that they may come to “life” in our epic battle on Sunday. Not only we will create the elements for our creatures but we will also get to build the battlefield they will take stage on and learn a little about the importance of backgrounds in storytelling and art creating.
12:00 pm -2:00 pm – Kinect Party! Come over to Intervention’s Video Game room and have fun playing Xbox 360 Kinect Party.
2:00pm – 3:00pm – We invite children to come and finish up their monster creations if not finished in the first panel. We will also be having a paper airplane race. Come and fold to your heart’s content until you think your paper plane will win the race!
3:00 pm -4:00pm – Break
4:00 pm- 5:00pm – Egg Drop! Do you think you have what it takes to create a safe haven for a tiny egg that will be dropped from dangerous heights? Come try your hand at making a container that will keep your egg safe as one of the program heads drop it from egg-defying heights!
5:00pm -7:00pm – Dinner Time
7:00 pm – 8:00 pm – We will take a look at what stop animation and claymation are and try our hand at creating a short video with our monsters.
We will be joined by a guest panelist P.J. Simmers who will teach us about voice acting, like creating voices to find the right one to apply to your creations, and how to apply it to videos.
Sunday- “Let’s Duel”
10:00am -12:00pm – It’s go time, we have built up to this moment all weekend, it is now time to put our monsters to battle in the epic game of Monster vs. Monster!
