AGES OF STUDENTS: AAS Art and Mandarin Summer Camp is designed for children entering kindergarten through 5th grade. 

OUR MISSION is to teach the students art and Mandarin under the inspiration of both ancient traditions and the humane values of our modern world. Through these varied exercises we strive to harmonize body and mind. 

MANDARIN STUDIES:  We work to develop or improve our students' skills in Mandarin and enhance their knowledge of Chinese culture through age-appropriate play-based activities and classes. (In summer 2018, Asian Arts School will celebrate its ninth year of partnership with the Confucius Institute at San Francisco State University. Mandarin teachers selected from the institute will join our summer camp staff and use their expertise to teach comprehension, speaking, reading,and writing in Mandarin.) 
ART: The visual-art component of the program enhances the children’s manual skills and their knowledge of color, form and perception. 

VARIETY OF INSTRUCTION:  Throughout the weeks of camp guest instructors in dance, drama, art and martial arts will intensify the camp experience and inspire our students. 

LANGUAGES OF INSTRUCTION: Though some of our students speak Mandarin already, we teach in both English and Mandarin with allowances for the varied fluency of the students. Our activities are designed to motivate our students to speak Mandarin as much as possible. Though our students are not required to know Mandarin already, we expect all the students to be enthusiastic about studying it. 

DATES AND SCHEDULE:  The camp consists of 10 one-week sessions that begin June 6th and end August 17th. 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.  

SMALL CLASSES:  We plan for a maximum of 18 students in a class so that each student receives a very personal level of attention.
DESCRIPTION OF A CAMP DAY :  The principal daily session is from 8:30 to till 3:00pm. It is a full day. The students 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 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 Cheney Field (at 28th Avenue and Vicente Street), and Sigmund Stern Grove.

MORNING EXTENDED CARE:  We offer an early morning session from 7:30am to 8:30am. This session principally features art instruction.

OPTIONS FOR THE LATE AFTERNOON SESSION:  During our late afternoon sessions, students will have the option to continue the day here at the school with the Afternoon Education Rainbow Program 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: . Students in the Afternoon Education Rainbow Program may indicate their choice on the original AAS day camp form. 
Our camp usually fills up fast. We recommend registering early.
