Recycle Camp | June 3-14

Reduce, reuse, repurpose and recycle! Young Artists will be given the opportunity to develop their artistic skills and engage with their peers while making original artwork with everyday objects. In theater new spins will be put on old tales. The dance and music classes will build on already acquired skills and turn them into new choreographed works and compositions. Young Artists will also explore the concept of sustainability as they turn waste into wonderful works of art.

Superhero Camp | July 8-19 

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Upturn Arts Young Artists! This session is all about Super Powers: the powers we already have, the powers we wish we already had, and the powers we see in each other. Young Artist’s will draw inspiration from their favorite superiors, cartoons, and real-life experiences to create a Marvel-Esque performance that’s outta this world!

Science. Technology. Engineering. ART! Mathematics.
