2020 SUMMER ARTS CAMP

Registration is Now Open!

June 8 - August 14, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic in our community, the Art and Culture Center/Hollywood is implementing changes to our Summer Arts Camp schedule and programs to increase the safety practices for our campers and staff. We will continue to follow government guidelines and take any necessary precautions to achieve our goal of keeping everyone healthy and safe while providing a memorable Summer Arts Camp experience.

 

Registration for all 2020 camp sessions is open. Please know that the Center will offer the option for full refunds for any programs that may be cancelled or rescheduled due to circumstances beyond our control.

Bring out the artist and performer in your child with visual arts, performing arts, music, and interdisciplinary programs at the Art and Culture Center’s Summer Arts Camp. Each session allows students the chance to build and hone skills which they then get to showcase in final exhibitions and performances.

We offer a variety of programs to suit your child’s interests and skill level:

  • Littlest Actors and Littlest Artists, for children ages 4 to 6 who want to express themselves creatively

  • Young Actors and Young Artists, ages 6 to 12, is the popular choice for the child who loves to participate in both the visual and performing arts

  • Broadway Actors, ages 8 to 18, is an intensive program for the talented performer who loves to be in the spotlight

 

A limited number of partial scholarships are available through our Arts Outreach Program for qualifying families.

Littlest Actors + Littlest Artists

Due to the inherent challenges of instituting social distancing for our youngest students, we are cancelling the first session of LALA as we evaluate the best practices for working with this developmental level. We are hopeful that we will be able to hold sessions this summer, as are currently planned, though that is subject to change at this time.

Show: Into the Woods, Jr.

Be careful what you wish for, as Stephen Sondheim’s and James Lapine’s cockeyed fairytale comes to life in this adaptation of their groundbreaking, Tony Award-winning musical. Into the Woods JR. features all of your favorite characters in this lyrically rich retelling of classic Brothers Grimm fables as they search for their happily ever afters.

 

Performances will be at 5:30 pm on Friday, August 7 and on Saturday, August 8.

Note: Due to the ensemble format of this program and the heightened expectations of the final performances, participants must meet minimum attendance requirements and commit to dress and tech rehearsals, as well as the final performance. Campers must bring a non-perishable bag lunch and two snacks.

The Center’s arts education programs for children and teens inspire creativity; strengthen the family bond; and grow awareness of the arts as an essential resource in a child’s social development and academic success. Research shows that children who participate regularly in the arts improve their attention span, learn more quickly and develop higher level critical thinking skills. They also have loads and loads of fun!
