Summer Arts Camp 2018

REGISTRATION NOW OPEN! Perpich Center for Arts Education is providing an Arts Camp for youth grades 6th-9th. Camp will be June 25th-29th, 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. daily.

We have 4 camp offerings for June, 2018. Click on the camp name to register.

  • African Drumming - $150/week
    • Students will experience the traditional rhythms and songs of Ghana, learn hand-drumming technique, as well as sing, play stick drums, shakers, bells, and gyils (traditional West-African marimbas.)
  • Creative Writing - $220/week
    • This creative writing class will include lots of reading and writing. Students will engage in a wide variety of genres of writing and plentiful exercises to spur their imagination to new places and new forms. Experimentation is a high value of this course, as is the belief that writing is limitless. We will also incorporate movies and other mediums to help us write in new and interdisciplinary ways.
  • Introduction to Play Writing - $150/week
    • There are few feelings more exciting than sitting in the back of a dark theatre watching live actors perform your words, while an audience laughs and cries or even shifts uncomfortably in their seats — and eventually bursts into applause. It’s like watching a chemical reaction that produces an incredible energy, an energy unique to the live stage. An energy that all begins with the playwright.
  • CLASS FULL, EMAIL TO BE PLACED ON THE WAIT LIST Stop Motion Animation - $150/week
    • Stop Motion Animation is a five-day hands-on workshop exploring the world of bringing objects to life. Students will work with a variety of mediums including clay, paper cut outs, drawing, and more. They will develop visual storytelling skills, be spontaneous, creative, and put together short stop motion animations. It will be tactile, kinetic, exploratory, and fun! This workshop is open to students of all skill levels.

The registration page will say that the camp is free, but each camp DOES have a cost. By state requirement, an invoice will be emailed to you.
