I am joined by the Founder and President of Arte al Sole, Shannon Kenny.  We talk about her camp, Arte al Sole for children in six locations throughout Italy and how the camps allow children to embrace, food, art, culture, natural history, and history.  We talk about Shannon’s awesome background in Medieval and Renaissance History and what motivates her, and more importantly, the children at Arte al Sole.

Visit their site at www.artealsole.com for a profile of each of her programs and to catch up on the details of each location.  There are six to choose from.

Arte al Sole is a summer day camp for international children offering week-long sessions based on the art, culture, and natural science of Italy with locations in Panicale, Umbria; Lucca, Montepulciano, and Florence in Tuscany; Rome; and Puglia. Children ages 6-12 will explore the artistic and natural wonders of these inspiring environments through exciting and engaging activities in art history, fine arts principles, nature walks, sketching and painting, collage, architecture, sculpture, craftsmanship, and science. Each session includes a cooking lesson preparing regional dishes and a fieldtrip to local museums and architectural sites. The program is entirely in English, offering an optimal language immersion experience for children of all ages and languages. A teen leadership program is also offered for students ages 13-17.
