They are offering two great Summer 5-Day Art Programs in Geneva. As a parent, summer can sometimes be tricky to find activities where your child can boost their creative mind, have fun, learn and improve their skill sets. The e5-summer academy does all of these things and guarantees that participants will leave charged and in a good place.

Drawing Academy

The first week in July will be given by Stephen Preece and will be a week of experiments and learning some great drawing skills for beginners or enhance them if you are an advance learner.

If you haven't seen all 4 Jurassic Park/World films, it might be the time to do a binge watching with your family! The dinosaurs are "alive" and well and have come to our little bit of paradise just around the corner! Not only will you see them, but you can also partake in other activities such as a museum, labyrinth, bouncy castle, mini-golf, archeological digs for you to become part of the excitment, and more! There is a refreshment stand selling snacks and drinks. 

The man behind the beasts is Zoltan Prin, who admits that he was like most kids, a real dinosaur fan. It has always been a dream of his to work on a theme as exciting as pre-historic creatures.

Following the success of Sion, Neuchâtel, and Villeneuve, the exhibition has now made its way to the Geneva Canton for its fourth edition. 

During your visit to DinoWorld, you will be able to observe these fierce predators up close and personal. You will be able to admire their sharp teeth, and huge claws that were used as formidible weapons. More than 30 species are represented such as the iconic Tyrannosaurus Rex, the impressive Diplodocus, the imposing Styracosaur and many others.

Zoltan told us, "My favorite dinosaur is the Spinosaurus (below). I love this one in particular because it is even bigger than the T. Rex — about 15m long; it might not be as popular as the other species, but if I had to choose one, this would be it. There were only a few fragments of one found in Egypt. In addition to being able to walk on land, the Spinosaurus was also a very good swimmer. Unbelievable, isn't it?"

Rollers Bar Rive 9

Recently opened indoor mini-golf bar, Rollers, was imagined by Gareth Rigby, a former banker seeking a creative project. Gareth's background started in St Andrew's, notorious for golf, where he went on to work in the film industry before moving on to banking. The latter brought him to Geneva and he decided to make a break from the corporate world and open a mini-golf with a movie theme, the perfect combination of his experiences!

The logo, Rollers, features the obvious golf ball but altered to become a cocktail glass with a tee stem, a wedge of lemon has been replaced by a movie reel, and the cocktail umbrella has been imagined as the golf flag! Gareth explains further, "The actual name of Rollers itself is a play on words of the rolling ball and the rolling film roll."
