Arts Alive places students side by side with professional artists. Our faculty of visual and performing artists and scientists/engineers teach and mentor students with the skills the professionals have mastered. Arts Alive is proudly celebrating our 26th year and we are confident this will be our best summer ever!
Music, Movement, Heart
This four week Musical Theatre Program immerses students into the musical theater genre. Arts Alive provides students a safe and supportive atmosphere in which they will experience fun yet highly rigorous training by professional theater artists. The program culminates in a musical theater presentation developed by the students in collaboration with their instructors.
Light, Form, Function
This two week visual program will incorporate art, engineering, science and technology into an intensive master class. Students will integrate wearable technology into sculptural costumes/installations while learning about the elements and principles of design. Working both independently and collaboratively, students will create multimedia works of art. Senior citizens are invited to participate in the program as part of the intergenerational focus.
