Music! Yoga! Art! Camp

Kids are naturally creative explorers. At M.Y. Art Camp we will make space for them to express themselves just as they are, enjoying each moment as it comes. Our camp activities combine art, music, and yoga into a day that feels inspiring, grounding, and fun. Kids will spend their mornings in art and music classes. Music will be a fun way for kids to play, sing and move to popular songs from the Rock, Jazz and Folk genres. Campers will get familiar with the different styles through listening and jamming on fiddle or ukulele (no previous experience necessary!). Art will be a time for hands-on expression with various materials and mediums. The afternoon will include yoga, stories, popsicles, and singing, and we’ll end each day playing outside at McGuffey Park.

Our instructors:

Matt Curreri is a Charlottesville-based songwriter, band leader, and teacher.  His “catchy rock-and-roll chanteys capture the warm joys and cold sweats” of life. (The New Yorker)  A graduate of The University of Notre Dame with a degree in literature, his melodic songs are melancholy or silly, dark or playful, but they always have a significant poetic content.  Matt currently teaches math and music at The Charlottesville Waldorf School, and he plays regular local shows, both solo and with his garage rock band, The Exfriends.  This summer Matt led a songwriting camp and a recording camp at The Front Porch followed by a performance of the groups’ original works at Tomtoberfest.  Visit www.mattcurreri.com to listen and read more.

Susan Northington is an elementary educator and contemporary artist living in Charlottesville, Virginia. She blends personal expression and her visual surroundings. Her work represents where she has lived or traveled. Susan is a native of south Georgia. The flat horizon line is highly featured in her art as well as the blue ridge mountains that surround her in Virginia. Her paintings are represented through the use of texture and colors and they represent the state of emotion rather than an actual location.

Robin Albertson-Wren has been teaching elementary age children for over ​20 years in Charlottesville, Virginia. She is a classroom teacher, author, workshop leader and public speaker. Her passion is teaching mindfulness techniques to executives, educators, parents, adolescents and children. She has presented “Mindfulness in Schools – Educating and Empowering Our Children” to many local, statewide and national audiences. She has received her mindfulness training through Mindful Schools, having completed a year-long certification course with 100 other people across the globe. She is currently teaching full-time and in addition, is a mindful instructor at the Contemplative Sciences Center at UVA.
