The Cultural Arts Council Douglasville/ Douglas County opens registration for Spring Break Arts Camp once again, but this year at the vibrant new location Boundary Waters Activity Center. During Spring Break, April 4-8, campers will spend a productive time exploring a wide variety of art forms with four expert and experienced teaching artists. Children ages 7-11 are invited to sign up for a week of arts intensive fun. Your child will travel through four art classes each day in collaboration of one amazing production on Friday, April 8.
The goal of the Spring Break Arts Camp is to encourage and reveal the talents of every camper to highlight the impact the arts have on young children in developing their creative skills, social interactions, and cultural awareness. But above all, this week will leave campers with memories of fun and inspiration. Fees for the week are $135 for the first child ($125 for CAC members) with a discount for siblings. Camp runs from 9 am – 4 pm, with an early drop off and late pick up option for parents, at an additional fee. Space is limited. Registration can be done in person or by visiting the CAC website at www.artsdouglas.org.
During the Spring Break Arts Camp, artists will work with each student on specific projects within their discipline that reflect on a common theme. The theme this year is inspired by the circus, with all the wondrous sights and sounds that the circus brings to mind. The theme will present the lifelong lesson of thinking outside the box and living unafraid to be unique. The message of the week will be a grand one of acceptance! The bright colors and inspiring oddities of the circus will be brought to life by your child and spectacular activities presented by the teaching artists.
The camp concludes with a Celebration of Success on Friday, April 8. Families are welcome to attend a final performance and showcase of work from the week. The campers will put together a gallery of their artwork, with a performance full of dancing, song, and characters that will surprise! This performance is not just a sideshow, but a memory to live on in your family forever.
The CAC continues to implement best practices set forth by the CDC and State guidelines. Classrooms will be kept clean, hand sanitizing stations will be provided, and the park itself offers plenty of space to spread out. We ask that children showing symptoms of illness to stay home.
