Thank you Creating Communities high-school Performing and Visual Arts Magnet Intern Madison Shannahan for the beautiful video of our June 2016 Arts Mentorship Academy!
Highlights of the 2016 Final Performance
The Arts Mentorship Academy provides an opportunity for young people ages 7 to 17. Participants are exposed to diverse art forms, and receive individual attention and mentoring through programs and workshops offered by master teachers and artists. By engaging in an array of intensive arts activities, students can discover inner talents while engaging in a welcoming and encouraging environment.
In addition to the arts program, the children are provided a healthy breakfast, snack and lunch each day.
Beginning in 2008, the Academy is now in its eigth summer session. Creating Communities hopes to increase this opportunity to a greater number of children by extending the summer program and adding weekend workshops, an afterschool program, and a series of mini-camps for area low-income neighborhoods.
