Piera has designed a program that stimulates and engages the senses through drawing, painting, collage, music, dance, and cooking. Inspired by what Reggio Emilia founder Loris Malaguzzi described as the hundred languages, the themes at Le Meraviglie change every week as children are exposed to the work of Picasso, Matisse, Rothko, Pollock, and others. Students will spend the day learning to experiment with printmaking, sculpting, and textile arts, along with painting, drawing, and collage. Campers take field trips to the park, run through the sprinklers, play games, and make more art outdoors.
