The kids had a blast, and I observed that the activities for older children were even more outstanding. …More about that below. First I’m compelled to post this tacky video of my girls:
Though the class consisted of five one-hour sessions spread over a single week, my daughters sang those tacky songs for months on end.
The activities for older age groups last longer, are more in-depth, and basically, amazing. Each afternoon as we left our little miniature infant woodstock session, the halls of the art building were swarming with young kids excited to show their parents what they had learned, built, drawn, and composed.
The courses range all over the arts spectrum:
- Art Sampler Classes
- Acting Classes
- Chinese Brush Painting
- Chinese Language & Culture Class
- Creative Storytime
- Creative Writing
- Discovery Band
- Drawing Classes
- Guitar Classes
- I.Q. Music for Kids
- International Cooking Arts
- Musical Theater-Dance
- Keyboard Classes
- and Voice
From the Summer Arts Camp website:
“As is the custom in the UALR Community School of the Arts, children will have the unique advantage of interacting with UALR faculty members and professional artists who are not only teachers, but artists working in their field. It is this caliber of faculty that separates this program from others.
On the safe and attractive University of Arkansas at Little Rock campus, these talented people have agreed to take time out this summer to share their expertise with children in our community, providing encouragement and mentorship. This is always a rich and rewarding experience, and a truly unique alternative to other summer programs.
Each day the young people attend four wonderful arts classes. Selecting among the many choices, they study the same four all week long. Students receive instruction in their own age group only: Grades K-1, 2-3, 4-6, 7 and up. Classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, with registration beginning February 1st.”
