While for many families summer is a season for enjoying the sun and having a break, it can also be a time for kids to expand their knowledge and creativity. We’ve got you covered with tons of summer camps in Beijing and abroad, but the list is still growing with more interesting activities.
Beginning June 19, Atelier will open its doors for kids looking for epic fun and adventure, through three distinct workshops on art, history, and science.
Discovering art movements
At the Atelier art workshop, kids will explore art movements and creations by famous painters like David Hockney from England, Pablo Picasso from Spain, and Frida Kahlo from Mexico. The kids will also get to see how architecture, art, and design are seen by “Art Nouveau” artists.
Atelier Summer Workshop, June 19 – August 26
Kids 5+. The workshops are divided into two: kids 5-8 (10am-noon) and kids 9+: 1.30-4pm. Workshop fee is RMB 1,800/week.
Wanted: Kid designers
The Atelier + Atelier Fablab needs kid scientists to design a space rocket to travel to the Moon. But before heading to our nearest celestial neighbor, Atelier is calling for kids to build a trebuchet and design castle fortifications to defend the Atelier kingdom against invaders!
Atelier + Atelier Fablab Workshop, June 19 – August 26
Kids 5+. The workshop is whole day for kids 9+, while kids aged 5-8 will do half day. Workshop fee is RMB 3,500/week (lunch not included).
On the way to a smart city
Kids joining the Atelier Fablab workshop will be guided on the how-to’s of 3D printing from scratch. The journey doesn’t end there as Atelier Fablab will bring the kids to Arduino Summer, a world full of smart electronics, and teach them to create and program small intelligent devices.
