BEACON – Rompatom Camp (Ages 8-14) @ Compass Arts

 

Students will be immersed in a variety of challenging instrumental and vocal material, learning about improvisation, theory, and composition, and creating a vibrant performance that will be shared that Friday at the end of the camp. A focus on rhythmic work and ensemble playing, combined with movement and theatrical elements, brings a deeper understanding to musicianship and music making that is enthralling for this age.

BEACON – Art & Movement Camp (Ages 5-10) @ Compass Arts

 

Through mindfulness exercises that consider each and every part of the body as a tool for mark-making, students will be given a GIANT “canvas” to investigate and work on over the course of the week. We will use our hands, arms, legs, feet, and more to invent new ways to apply paint to paper. Explorations into basic engineering, such as the construction of a pendulum for dripping paint in an arching shape, will open up new and exciting possibilities!
