Monday, 12/23: Produce, Reuse, Upcycle: Recycled Craft Day – Trip to SCRAP PDX

What was lost can now be found at SCRAP PDX and turned into inventive creations! We’ll check out the store, work through a creative challenge, learn about reusing materials otherwise bound for the landfill, and flip doodads and thingamajigs into a new doohickey to take home.

Tuesday, 12/24: Cozy and Crafty with Friends

It’s cold out there, so how about a cozy day inside with friends? Hot chocolate, music, beads, crafts, yarn, card making, and maybe even a midday movie. For those needing to get some energy out, we’ll have partner games in the gym.

Thursday, 12/26: Bookworm Hero – Matilda The Musical at NW Children’s Theater

Scenes, songs and center stage! Settle in for Matilda, “the story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.”

Friday, 12/27: Mr. Lizard’s Mobile Zoo

Please be sure to touch the reptiles. That’s right, this is a hands-on experience! Mr. Lizard’s Mobile Zoo will dazzle, entertain and educate us about these often misunderstood animals. We’ll spend our day crafting cold-blooded creatures and getting into some swampy slime before our live finale!

Monday, 12/30: Graphics and Lasers: Day of Design – Live Graphic Design with JP Downer

Doodles go digital in our day dedicated to design. We’ll collaborate with JP Downer of Motorobot Design, who will show us how a love for drawing led to a career as an artistic designer for the music industry. Bearded Boy Design and Laser Cutting will send us home with personalized wooden souvenirs.

Thursday, 1/2: The Art of Self – Portland Art Museum Tour: “Expressing Identity”

What do artists hope to express through their work? What does artwork say about its creator? We’ll explore these questions and more as the experts at the Portland Art Museum lead us through the incredible collection currently on display.

Friday, 1/3: I Am the Entertainer –Spencer Sprocket, Entertainer

Squeaks and twists, abracadabras and prestos, oohs and aahs. Spencer is the everything entertainer with skills as a balloon artist, juggler, and comedic magician. Come ready to stump him with balloon animal requests and stay ready to be dazzled at our Winter Break Camp finale.
