Kids can explore music, science and art at a series of unique, educational summer programs hosted by the WIDE School.
The Fort Bend Reggio-Emilia inspired pre-school and elementary school, in partnership with Yellow House Ateller art classes, will offer four programs beginning June 20. Parents and children can choose from private DJ classes to group art and science sessions designed to nurture a life-long love of learning.
Houston-based DJ Hiram Trevino will offer two programs aimed at children desiring to explore the world of professional DJs. Both programs offer one-on-one instruction. DJ Intro will introduce children ages 7 and up to the Serato user interface, identify “drops,” “bridges,” “intros” and “outros” and provide hands-on practice. The cost is $150. Children ages 6 and up can explore the library of sounds, learn drum pattern sequences and create a 32-64 bar loop during a four-week Mashcine Intro. The cost is $200. Both courses begin June 20.
Children, ages 4 and up, will study the sciences of sound and food chemistry during a seven-week, Exploring the Elements session. Yellow House Ateller will work with students to explore how natural elements can be manipulated to create sound. In addition, Rediscovering Food will help students understand states of matter, germination and hydroponics. During the session, children will work with professionals to help create sound and hydroponic or aquaponics installations for the WIDE campus. The session runs June 20 to Aug. 5 and cost is $180 per week, per student. An extended day is available for an extra $25 per week.
Color and form are the topics of a six-week art program, June 20 to July 29. Children ages 4 and up will create two pieces of art in the medium of their choice, one focused on color and the other on form. Pieces will be displayed at the Summer Block Party, Aug. 5. The cost is $140.
All classes will be held at the WIDE campus, 2777 Dulles Avenue in Missouri City. For more information and to register, phone 281-2018-9545 or email info@littlewonderslearningcenter.
