WHAT: This pilot program is the next stage for Upturn Arts programming. With funding from the New Orleans Theatre Association, this year’s camp will be offered FREE of charge to a limited number of participants, or YATs. The YATs will be tasked with creating and executing a performance of their choice and serve as classroom assistants and mentors for younger students.

WHY: To expose young artists to the artistic process – including planning, implementation, collaboration, and execution; and arts education – including elements of lesson planning, classroom management, and reflection. In addition, the YATs will provide feedback and ideas for developing a new teen curriculum.
