Q&A with Alyssa And Anju, Co Founders
Apart from your business’s main attraction, do you offer any “hidden” services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about?
Visual Arts Children will spend time in the studio working on independent projects beyond the usual school and craft projects. Collaborative projects (murals and large sculpture) will occupy part of the week. On Friday afternoon, an art exhibit for guests will bring the session to a close. Goals for campers are to develop their drawing, painting and sculptural skills and to improve observational skills. They experience an overall robust, positive, design process. No projects are repeated throughout the summer and curriculum is differentiated for each camper. Yoga Our campers use yoga techniques to develop a sense of themselves. We will learn to breathe, focus and relax. “Art and Soul” yoga will stretch the mind and body. This movement is designed to build strength, balance and confidence, stimulate creativity and imagination. The tools of yoga and mindfulness offer proven methods of managing physical, mental and emotional stress. Cooking Campers in the kitchen will develop culinary confidence by learning cooking techniques. They will also expand on science, math, reading, health and social skills while preparing healthy snacks and meals.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
OUR TEAM Anju Chugh Alyssa Levitan Co-founders, Alyssa Levitan and Anju Chugh are veteran Silicon Valley educators. “We see an urgent need for integrated emotional, social and reflective learning in a world where correct answers and rules prevail.” - Alyssa Levitan “We also believe that the arts and mindfulness teach children self reliance, confidence, and give them tools for making good judgements about qualitative life experiences.”- Anju Chugh Anju has over fourteen years of experience as an SDC educator for ARUSD & PAUSD. With an entrepreneurial mindset, building on that experience she started a healthy food service, ‘Pepreka’. Fulfilling the need in her community she directed multiple successful after school and weekend programs in art and cooking with children and adults. Alyssa has worked in the design industry over twenty years, designing interiors for residential and commercial clients. In addition to her design business, she is an art educator at PAUSD and instructs students in her studio. She continues to create art exhibiting nationwide.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn’t cover?
Our Day Yoga and storytelling gets us started in the morning and to refocus us each day after lunch. Morning and afternoon sessions will offer multiple art projects - acrylic painting on canvas, plaster sculpture, printmaking and much more. Campers will be cooking snacks to share as well as a larger menu for our art show on Fridays. Craft and tinkering projects will be offered as free choice activity throughout the day. We will enjoy our bag lunch brought from home, under the trees at Rinconada Park and break for snacks in the morning and afternoons.
