Creative Arts Camp 2018

This two-week camp emphasizes a collaboration of experiences in visual arts and theatre. Campers will work with a visual artist to experiment with a wide range of media. Campers will create artistic scenic elements, like props, costumes and other set designs to be incorporated into the final performance. The theatre instructor will lead campers through a series of performance activities and improvisation exercises. All activities are designed to promote self-confidence, personal expression and critical thinking skills and to serve as an introduction to visual arts and theatre.
