BE the ART. Camp for Teens
BE the ART. Camp for Teens
Art educators Hope McMath of YELLOW HOUSE and Barbara Colaciello of BABS’LAB invite you to be part of a 2 week hands-on ART/DRAMA camp that promotes creative freedom and personal exploration! Through the process of journaling, art making, and improvisation training, campers will visit ARTIST’S STUDIOS within the CoRK Arts District.
Using that experience as inspiration students will explore art making through painting, print making, and drawings. They will also learn how to embody their art by participating in storytelling games to develop a character for performance. The program culminates with an art exhibit curated by the students celebrating their work at YELLOW HOUSE and an original collaborative theater piece performed at BABS’LAB.
Challenging, rewarding, and fun the program is geared for inquisitive middle and high schoolers. The ideal participant will have a strong interest in the arts and a willingness to gain new skills. Limited to 10 participants. Register Early!
PLEASE NOTE: To ensure a great camp experience we hope to set up a meet & greet or a phone conversation with parents to answer questions about our process.
