DESCRIPTION: Ever had breakfast for dinner? … Worn pj’s to school? … Stayed up all night and then slept all day… We have! Get ready to turn it upside down at Upturn Arts! Let your young artists spend spring break navigating our bizarro “opposite” world. With creativity and collaboration, we will explore appropriate ways to break the rules and show that traditional opposites can work together to form a beautiful outcome. Who knows? You may just learn how to dance backward, draw with your non-dominant hand or play a non-traditional part in a scene. One thing’s for certain…You’ll have a ton of fun along the way!
