Expressive Arts and Drama, Ages 11-14

This summer workshop will provide space for children ages 11-14 to explore various modes of expression through the arts including movement, visual arts, drama, and writing. Participants will have the opportunity to focus on expressive modalities that they may already feel comfortable with while also trying on something new! We will spend time in nature and use their observations of the natural world to influence their art-making, play, and conversations. Creating a secure space for individuals to explore their own emotional expression within a supportive group of peers will be prioritized. 

Camps run 9 am - 3 pm Monday- Thursday 

Week 1: Expressive Arts

Week 2: Drama-focused week

*Students and staff are encouraged to bike or walk to school and do so often.
