AAS Art and Mandarin Summer Camp is designed for children entering kindergarten through 5th grade. We teach art with the intention of ultimately bringing the students to a professional level. We also work to maintain or improve the students' language skills in Mandarin and enhance their knowledge of Chinese culture through age-appropriate play-based classes and activities.
In summer 2017, Asian Arts School celebrates its eighth year of partnership with the Confucius Institute at San Francisco State University. Mandarin teachers selected from the institute will join our dynamic summer camp staff and use their expertise to teach speaking, reading and writing in Mandarin. Throughout the weeks, special guests such as dancing, drama, martial arts experts and award-winning young artists will be invited to intensify the camp experience and inspire our students.
The camp consists of 10 one-week sessions that begin May 30th and end August 4th The basic program is from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm with extended-care options that run from 7:30 to 8:30 am and from 3:00 to 6:00 pm.
Our summer camp students will have very full days: The students will draw and paint, practice reading and writing Chinese, sing Mandarin songs and learn folk dances. Furthermore, students who have advanced skills in art or Mandarin will be eligible for supplemental instruction according to their levels of proficiency.
During our late afternoon sessions, students will have the option to continue with the Afternoon Education Rainbow Program here at the school or to practice Kung Fu with martial arts master Leo Wang of Panda Kungfu on Judah Street. You will find their registration form in the link here: www.pandakungfucenter.com . Students in the Afternoon Education Rainbow Program may indicate their choice on the original AAS day camp form.
The camp’s mission is to teach the students a well-rounded set of skills that come out of ancient traditions but that are still respected in the modern world. Through these varied exercises we harmonize body and mind through work and play. We encourage our students to speak Mandarin as much as possible. We teach in both English and Mandarin with allowances for the varied fluency of the students. Students are not required to know Mandarin, but we expect them to be enthusiastic about studying it.
The principal daily session is from 8:30 to till 3:00pm.
The activities include:
Drawing (cartoons, proportions, lights and shadows);
Painting (watercolor, tempera or Chinese brush painting);
Reading, writing and speaking Mandarin;
Poetry and song in Mandarin;
Drama activities; and
During any one-week session there will be at least one field trip that includes outdoor landscape drawing. Most field trips will be to Parkside Square & Bob Chemey Field (at 28th Avenue and Vicente Street), Sigmund Stern Grove, and sometimes, Golden Gate Park.
Art and Mandarin Summer Camp will be a small camp with a maximum of 16 students. This will make it possible for each student to receive a very personal level of attention.
Enroll your child before our camp fills up. If you have questions, call us on weekdays between 9am and 2pm at
