Was it Bertrand Russel who said it best? "Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time" Well we are definitely on board with that Mr. Russell and now's the time to take full advantage of all the sea frolicking and sun soaking San Diego has to offer! And when you're not laying on the beach without a care in the world we're here to help keep you inspired and creative. After all, now that you have all this extra time on your hands you can finally start that family band, try a new instrument, paint that masterpiece, draw your own comic book or explore life on Mars.
1. SHOOT A SHORT FILM WITH UR IPHONE
We have all the tools available to us to make movies at the tip of our fingers, literally. But that shouldn't stop us from getting down on some paint and paper the old school way. Join our Artist Village summer camp and have the opportunity to study with acclaimed local artists from around San Diego. Together students will create pieces in whatever analog or digital format their heart desires, based on a theme they imagine for an exhibit they curate. How cool is that?
2. WRITE A SONG FOR UR MOM
Because she deserves it. And then you can write a song about your Dad, and another song about your friend and another..... by the end of the summer you might have a whole album's worth of material. And if you don't know how to write a song, we can teach you. Not only that, we can teach you how to record it in a studio, push all the right buttons and release it to the world. The Songbird Label is where it's at with NATULA and friends.
3.BE UR OWN SUPERHERO
Or when in need, just draw one. Our resident comic book artist Rodney Anderson has planned a whole action packed camp for all you comic book nerds out there. Character design, world building, costume, plot, history and culture are just some of the elements that Rodney will adventure through with campers, pencil and pen in hand. It's going to be rad so sign up while spaces last and get warmed up for Comic Con 2016.
4. EAT ICE CREAM + SWIM IN THE SEA
All at the same time.
5. LEARN AN INSTRUMENT
Or learn a second one. Summer is the perfect time to try something new. Have you ever wanted to learn the violin or cello? Rock out on some drums? Play a Beatles song on the guitar? Sing some Adele? Noodle some jazz on a clarinet? Strum the ukulele with style the next time you hit the beach with friends? Contact us and let us help you make the most of your summer gifts.
6. MAKE A MIXTAPE FOR A FRIEND
Win the heart of all who listen.
7. BUILD A FIRE + SING FOLK SONGS
The world is big and despite the many different languages, cultures and climates we all come from, we can't deny our shared humanity. Music + Art is a powerful and beautiful tool to express ourselves and discover the differences that make us unique and the similarities we can all understand. This summer, a very special camp series based on the music, dance and art of 4 different regions is coming to Kalabash for ages 7 - 10. From the Americas to Europe, this is the perfect opportunity for your little one to discover the world without leave home.
8. DANCE BAREFOOT UNDER THE FULL MOON
You don't need to know any fancy moves and you don't need a full moon, just dance coz it feels good.
