Arts Smarts 2024 – Week 1: MUSIC Morning Session – Grades 3-5

Monday, June 17, 2024
Doors: 9am | Performance: 9am

World Music Exploration
This camp is all about traveling in search of the best music from around the globe!  We will use our imaginations and travel to far-off places to encounter the music and instrument of those locales including Peru, Egypt, Mexico, and China.  We will then head back to the lab where we will create the instruments we discovered each day.

Campers can register for morning sessions from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM, afternoon sessions from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM, or both! (For those staying all day, there is a supervised lunch period. Lunches must be brought to camp and will be refrigerated.) Morning and afternoon snacks are provided. Both mornings and afternoons feature a “Common Hour” in which all campers join together for a large group creative multi-disciplinary activity. On Fridays of both weeks, there are morning and afternoon performance showcases and art exhibits for families and friends featuring the campers’ work of each week. Drop-off and pick-up at the Ware Center is supervised by the staff. Registration deadline is May 17, 2024.

Teaching Artist JULIA KAMANDA, happily returning to ARTS SMARTS after a summer in Africa, is the owner and creative director for the Young Musician Academy, a contemporary music mentoring program for musicians ages 7-19. She loves to write songs, go hiking with her guitar, and travel to cool places around the world.

Camps are $125 for a 1/2 day session, per week, per child. We offer full and partial scholarships. Please email to inquire about scholarship options.
