EXPLORATION
(ages 6-9)
Younger campers spend exhilarating days experiencing everything from world rhythms and dance to choral singing and mixed-media art projects, from instrument making to theater and storytelling. Full-day Exploration sessions are taught by enthusiastic professional artists who understand how best to help children spark their own creativity.
Each session features a fresh and exciting mix of performing and visual arts experiences that vary thematically from session to session. Structured activities are balanced with free time for play outdoors. Sessions conclude with a showcase for family and friends.



BROADWAY BOUND
(ages 9-14)
Broadway Bound challenges young people with a strong interest in theater to train as a “triple threat” singer, dancer and actor. 
  • Session One’s music celebrates Broadway classics from the Golden Age (1930-1965).
  • Session Two emphasizes contemporary favorites (1966-today). 
Each Broadway Bound session culminates with showcase performances on the last day for family and friends. 
  • In Session Three students will collaborate with the SF Bay Area Theatre Company, a group started by SFArtsED alumni, to create a fully staged concert production of Ragtime, an epic musical exploring race, immigration and what it means to be an American. The final week of Broadway Bound Session 3 will take place on campus at San Francisco State University. One performance will be free for family and friends on Friday, July 21 at SF State. The second will be a benefit for SFArtsED and SF BATCO on Saturday, July 22 at ACT’s Strand Theater, with tickets available to the general public.
Enrollment in a Broadway Bound session is a prerequisite for consideration for being invited to join the SFArtsED Players musical theater company. (Check out last summer's amazing original revue: Building Broadway: From Show Boat to Hamilton, How Musicals Are Made.)



ART & DESIGN
(ages 10-14)
Art & Design explores various aspects of and develops skills in visual art making.
  • Session One explores the worlds of clay and three-dimensional creations in Art & Design: Sculpture. 
  • In Session Two, designers will move fashion forward in Fashion Design and create runway-ready styles in Art & Design: Fashion. 
  • In Session Three, Art & Design takes young visual artists into the Artists’ Studio, an exploration of mixed-media arts that includes painting, drawing, illustration and more in Art & Design: Artists’ Studio (Mixed Media) 
A curated exhibition in SFArtsED’s Minnesota Street Project gallery space in July and August will feature work created in all Art & Design sessions. (Check out last summer's amazing fashion show and art exhibit.)

SFArtsED Summer: blasts from the past.

Sometimes, if you're lucky, students become teachers.
One of the most rewarding aspects of the SFArtsED summer production is the added collabortion of former SFArtsED students and the younger performers. In addition to working with the best professional artists out there, the Broadway Bound program welcomes back SFArtsED alumni to tackle lead roles in the summer musical and serve as mentors to members of the Players musical theater troupe and to the novice Broadway Bound students. It's an extraordinary partnership, and you'll see the results in Guys and Dolls, performed July 22 at Hertz Hall on the UC Berkeley campus (showtime is 8pm) and on July 25 at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music (showtime is 7:30pm).

Now let our alumni stars tell you more.

 

Inspiration comes in many forms.
For Broadway Bound students in Session 2, inspiration took the form of five boys who share the role of Billy Elliot in the touring production of the Tony Award-winning Billy Elliot: The Musical. With thanks to SHN, the five Billys spent an afternoon with our students doing warm-up routines, teaching dance steps and sharing insight into the life of a professional performer. Don Sanchez of ABC KGO-TV was there and filed this report:
