2013 Summer Arts College
This camp offers a unique opportunity for children ages 6-16 to learn from some of the area’s top artists. Students receive a taste of the performing and visual arts. They'll be a part of an imaginative and fun week-long cultural experience held in Northeast Tarrant County locations. Scholarships are available to students who are financially unable to attend.
Data shows that study of the arts helps children to develop cognitive skills, which include the abilities to analyze, reflect, make judgments, and generate new ideas of their own. The arts also nurture motivation, a higher-level thinking, self-confidence, self-identity, conflict resolution, collaboration, empathy, and social tolerance.
During each session, professional artists and teachers give students a chance to participate in different artistic disciplines, including visual arts, drama, music, and dance. Our program allows the student to explore and develop his/her artistic talents and interests. Students are allowed to let their imaginations run wild as they design their own projects and create their own dances or songs. At the end of each session, on Friday afternoon, students perform for parents and family.
Summer Arts College continues to fill a gap for students while they're out of school, allowing them to spend their summer vacation productively in a fun, creative, and educational environment.
