Summer Camps at ARTworks

    Here’s the 2012 summer camp schedule for ARTworks.
    Summertime @ ARTworks and the art-fun is easy.
    The ARTworks community arts center is 12,000 square feet of dedication to learning through the arts. This summer, two skilled artist-educators offer weeks of visual arts and theater performance for children.

    TheaterART @ ARTworks is for children ages 6-16 to explore all aspects of the stage – performing, designing, and writing – in a fun and inspiring environment! We will create a wild adventure on our way from performance skills to Gullah Tales to puppets and more. Each session will have a showcase on Friday for family and friends to see what we’ve worked so hard on! Class fees include instruction from licensed theater educator Heather Denardo, stage use, materials, and a small snack each day. Space is limited, so sign up for the weeks your child will enjoy ahead of time. For more information please call ARTworks (843-379-2787) or email Heather Denardo directly at heather.denardo@yahoo.com.
    Cost is $110 per one week session, and limited 50% scholarships are available.

    June 11-15: Performance Skills. For the actor in all of us! This week will focus on the basics of performing onstage – presence, character, voice, and movement. Each class will write their own play and apply the skills they learn to create a production for family and friends on the last day. Guaranteed to keep the laughter and fun going in an engaging and creative environment.

    June 18-22: Lowcountry Tails. Inspired by the flora, fauna, and unique culture of the Lowcountry, this class focuses on Gullah tales as inspiration for our own plays. Students will learn basic performance skills while also getting a taste of the rich heritage of the Lowcountry. We will add our own scenery and costumes to make these tales come to life for family and friends on the last day of class.

    June 25-29: Theatrical Design. Do you have an artistic flair that you’re not sure what to do with? Not really crazy about performing, but have creativity that’s ready to be shared? This class is for you! We will focus on the backstage side of theater – costume and set design – and learn how these invaluable pieces come together with the play to create a production that is cohesive and imaginative. Students will learn design basics and then put their creativity to the test by designing costumes or set for a play! We will showcase designs on the last day of class for family and friends.

    July 9-13: Puppets, Puppets, Puppets! Come watch how a flip-flop can transform into a silly friend, or a paint stick and a sponge can suddenly dance and sing across the stage. Using everyday, household items we will create different kinds of puppets and learn some of the art of puppetry to create a play for family and friends on the last day of class!
