Summer Kids 2011 Registration Workshops for Grades 1 to 8
Workshops for Grades 1 to 8
Taught by top-notch professional artist/educators, Summer Kids workshops are for young people entering grades 1 to 8 in the fall. All kinds of kids will enjoy these weeklong (Monday-Friday), half-day workshops. Our workshops stand out from the competition because of our strong commitment to nurturing essential 21st-century skills, especially creativity. Kids work side by side with their teachers, learning creative thinking, self-expression, self-confidence, communication, and cooperation, as well as art-making processes.
$95 general public
