“My goal as a teacher is to teach young people how to translate their many creative thoughts and feelings into art in a safe, healthy environment. These skills of communication, compassion, and community will be a part of every aspect of their lives.”
-Livi Perrone, Creative Director for Riverside Theatre Arts and program mentor
This one-week program focuses on the creative side of performance arts. Our mission is to teach young artists the invaluable skill of self-expression. The program is split into three distinct facets; expression, mentoring, and presentation. Students will have time allotted each day to learn fun creative exercises that will help them find inspiration. The second aspect of the class will be lessons with professional mentors that have mastered specific arts such as expression through movement, songwriting, and visual art. The third part of the program is based on refining their artistic ideas into a final presentation. Each individual student will have the opportunity to present an art piece that they have developed with the help of the program mentors and teachers. These pieces will be presented for the parents and families on the final day of the program.
