Expression in the Arts

One-Week Program (2nd-12th grade)

This one-week program focuses on the creative side of performance arts. Our mission is to teach young artists the invaluable skill of self-expression. The program is split into three distinct facets; expression, mentoring, and presentation.

Students will have time allotted each day to learn fun creative exercises that will help them find inspiration. The second aspect of the class will be lessons with professional mentors that have mastered specific arts such as expression through movement, songwriting, and visual art. The third part of the program is based on refining their artistic ideas into a final presentation.

Ages: 2nd - 12th grade (2019-2020 school year)
Dates:
 August 26th - August 30th
Price: $175

Each age group will meet at a different time of day to insure that they're working at a level that is appropriate for them:

2nd-4th grade: 9am-12pm (8am drop-off available)
