Session 2: Under the Sea!

Music- and performance-themed camp for kinder-aged merfolk and pirates alike! Vibrant singalongs and costumed stagings will be a huge part of this fine-arts-infused camp, and we'll sneak in a little bit of ocean sciences too! Such wonderful things surround you, in the Under the Sea camp! We'll host a mini recital/concert event during the last part of the 2/24 camp day!

Consecutive Fridays, 9:30 am – 12:30 pm

Session 3: Over the Rainbow

Using different art-making media (from pastels to sculpting), young artists will explore the spectrum of light. Each week we'll focus on a different color! We'll sing and tell stories together too, including some rich fables centered on the myths of the rainbow. Then, after the kids finish their masterpieces, we invite you to join us at a gallery showcase during the last part of the 5/19 camp day!
