It's here! Registrations are now open for Summer camps at the MAC
! In partnership with the RDN, we're offering a full summer of programming for kids and youth.
MAC Summer School for the Creative Arts 2017 will feature 8 weeks of fun, creative, inspiring and energetic programming for children and youth, ages 8-12 yrs and 12 yrs+ (some of our programs also feature projects for younger ages, 3-7 yrs). All genres of creative learning are featured this summer - visual arts, music, dance, theatre and inspired fun with sewing & soft sculpture, and kite making - just in time for Parksville's Kite Festival in July.
Students will learn to explore art techniques, design and creation in visual arts mixed media, zentangle, photography and graffiti styles. Students will find a welcoming and creative energy in classes that inspire movement and performance with readers theatre, youth yoga and dance styles including jazz, ballet, hip hop, disco and country line dancing. Soft sculpture will allow students to learn hand stitching, sewing machine skills and needle felting in making their designs come to life. Students will learn about the fascinating history of kites, see a selection of kites from around the world (many are 10-15 ft high!) and then design, paint and build their own kites with an invitation to join the instructor to show them off at Parksville's Kite Festival.
