The Alliance for the Arts offers camp options including Summer Arts Camp for grades 1 – 6 and Musical Theatre Intensive Camp for grades 7-12. Alliance member registration opens February 11. Non-member registration opens February 25.
Summer Arts Camps allow children to explore art, culture and performance during eight different weekly sessions for an exciting summer experience. Weeks are packed with an eclectic mix of performing activities like storytelling, improv games and stage combat. Campers will also have the unique opportunity to follow great traditional and contemporary art masters through sketching, mixed media, collage and more.
“Kids will love creating one-of-a-kind masterpieces, making new friends, exploring our galleries, learning from special guests and so much more,” says assistant director Brandi Couse.
