About Brillante

The brillante experience

Brillante Camp is a creative day camp for young artists to explore and expand their gifts through original music and artwork. We believe that art has the ability to build confidence and inspire a generation of young people committed to a more beautiful and loving world. Brillante Camp will be your child’s favorite week of the year filled with beauty, creativity and fun. 

Art

This year, we will experience the wonderfully luminous art of true buon fresco, a traditional form of painting that has been done in every century to capture the most powerful and important subjects. We will take a look at some of the most famous fresco works across Europe and have a chance to use traditional fresco materials, which have been brought here straight from Florence, Italy! We will mix our own powder pigments into paint, mix plaster from marble dust, lime, and sand, and learn how to apply our paint with proper handmade fresco brushes and tools.  This rare experience will enrich encounters with art as well as inspire students in their own creative life by sparking a love for this magnificent form of art! 

Music and Theatre

Marie Miller will team up with children's director and acting coach Lindsay Hayes in assisting students to create a story, write the music, and perform in an original musical. This year we will dive in deeper into creativity—not only by exploring original music, but also with original stories and dialogue.
