Description

Midtown International School is Atlanta's K-12 home for globally-minded, gifted learners. Our summer camps are interdisciplinary academic enrichment opportunities where students tackle big problems in creative and collaborative ways. All students enrolled in summer camps choose threads each week in the arts; science, robotics, or technology; math or engineering; literature, writing, or humanities; athletics; test prep; or foreign languages. There are new activities and opportunities every week! This year we will have a virtual summer camp where you will have the option of signing up your students for individual classes. The courses are designed to be one hour long thus limiting screen time. You also have the option of signing up for a morning, afternoon, and evening sessions. 

Introduction to Spanish-Introduction to Spanish will provide the student with a general introduction to the Spanish language: sound system, pronunciation, functional vocabulary related to everyday life, cultural information, and basic grammatical structures. Emphasis will be on the acquisition of four skills: listening, speaking, reading, and limited writing. There are two main objectives of the course. Foremost is to give the students the ability to carry on a simple conversation. The second is to provide the students with instruction that teaches a basic understanding of Spanish culture, vocabulary, and grammatical concepts. Course Materials - Students must have access to a working computer that can access ZOOM and other apps.  Students will also need paper and a pencil.

Sculpting with Clay-This course is an introduction to sculpting with natural clay. Students will learn about the basic stages and techniques used for producing sculptures, given historical context, by being led through hands-on art projects. Course Materials- Students must have access to a working device that can access ZOOM and other apps. Supply List: Arts and crafts material such as paper, pencil, protection for the table, paint, and natural air drying clay.
