We can’t believe another year has gone by. But that’s what happens when you’re clowning, dancing, sculpting, cartooning and singing the summer away.
SFArtsED Summer 2010 started with less but we ended up with more:
over 100 kids (from among 40 different SF public schools,) received full Camp scholarships.
To capture three Sessions and six weeks in just a few more words, here’s what we did last summer. The new half-days were a big hit. And bigger still, were the number of kids who took advantage of our new Renaissance Artist schedule: picking any Visual Arts class in the morning and Broadway Bound’s singing, acting and dancing challenges in the afternoon.
Speaking of Broadway Bound, Artistic Director Emily Keeler noted that it was one of the most talented groups to date. In addition to this session’s being one of the most popular yet. Some 58 of these kids aged 9-14, went on to perform Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel in San Francisco and Berkeley with the UC Berkeley Summer Symphony. See our SFArtsED Players page for more about that summer coup.
The Visual Artists who chose to take say, Cartooning & Illustration in the morning and Sculpture & Clay in the afternoon, experienced sessions with no less than 4 different professional Artist teachers per day. We could go on, but, on to next year with your interest, feedback and (thanks in advance) your donations.
So what makes SFArtsED Summer Camp tick going on its 16th year?
We have a 45-year-old track record of joining school children with proven, professional Artists who are passionate — and experienced — in bringing participatory art to kids.
We recruit these teachers because they are accomplished. Enthusiastic. And have years of teaching experience. We invite you to go to the Who We Are section of this website to get to know more about our kids, our Mission, History and our prized Artists.
