Registration is OPEN for Summer Arts Camp June 19-23, 2017, sponsored by the Hampshire County Arts Council at Romney Elementary School for students entering 3rd grade to 2017 graduating seniors with a genuine interest in the arts.
Camp is Monday-Friday 8:30 am – 3:00 pm and fee includes hot breakfast and lunch and a camp memento.
Our objective is to expose our campers to artistic expression taught by a wide variety of experts whether it is in music, dance or the many types of visual arts. The campers will have a special performance by Dr. Greg Latta, a multi-talented musician, singer and songwriter and an award winning performer.
New this year will be ukulele lessons which may inspire campers to continue playing in a ukulele band forming after the conclusion of camp. We have grouped together week-long menus of classes to allow campers some flexibility in choices while providing all campers equal opportunity to broaden their experiences.
Most classes are 1- and 2-day sessions while some are 4-day sessions for team work on projects which may be presented along with other pieces of art for the enjoyment of families and friends at the open house on Friday afternoon beginning at 2 pm.
Instructors are Liz Braun, Brenton Colbert, John D’Amico, Chelsea Carr, Judi Gaydos, Mark Griffith, Barbie Hillenbrand, Nancy Judd, Jeff Keister, Skylar Lane, Larry Manning, Sibyl Mackenzie, Swami Ramachandrananda, Paige Tighe and others
