Summer Session May 24th – July 2nd
Art & Music of the Summer will be an eclectic music & art course, using the summer season as inspiration for our studies. Our study of music will focus on learning all about the orchestra, including the instruments & seating. Art projects will include guided paintings & handcrafts inspired by the beauty of summertime! Dance parties & games too! This class is suitable for students in grades 2-7. Younger students (grades 2-4th) may benefit from side-by-side assistance from a parent.
PREREQUISITES: None required! This would be an excellent continuation course for students who have completed Art & Music of the Seasons 1 and/or students who plan to do Art & Music of the Seasons 2 this coming fall 2021. Please reach out to Academic Advising with any questions.
