Inspiration Programs for Summer 2015

Join our faculty and staff  as they inspire children to try new things and enjoy learning many different skills. These not-for-credit, just-for-fun programs allow students to explore in the company of other students who are interested in the topic. All programs are open to children from the wider Steamboat community, as well as to Emerald's own students. Each program has a maximum enrollment, so be sure to get your form in early! The dates for each program are different so be sure to check the schedule for each individual program.   All classes are held at Emerald Mountain School, 818 Oak St.  A light snack will be provided.

With a little imagination and creativity, small everyday objects can come to life.  Throughout the summer, we will use iPad cameras to photograph everyday objects and then look at them with a different view to be able to write creative short stories and poems inspired by the pictures. Students will end the summer with at least one printed photograph and published writing to remember to look at the world in focus.
