The Body as a Paint Brush at Sunnyside Plays play space in Queens
Summer 2017

This past summer we had a fantastic time meeting new dancers at The Body as a Paint Brush, our fun and innovative one-week camp for children 3-5 years of age to explore, through dance works of art by Matisse, Picasso, Pollock and more. Led by movement specialists Dina Gray (Avenues: The World School) and Sarah Turner (The Episcopal School), "The Body as a Paint Brush" blends art history with a unique study of the creative dance making process. Children were able to dance to the music that inspired some of the world's most famous masterpieces, in the process discovering how artists move their paint brushes to create the colors and shapes that define their art. The children had an opportunity to create art pieces to use in their dances and movement explorations as props and costume pieces. We are looking forward to summer 2018!
