This 3-day camp offers a creative partnership with our production of A Midsummer Night's Rock, the original musical that will be rehearsing concurrently at Read Play Love.
Kids age 8+ will have access to all kinds of raw materials for making recycled and upcycled mixed media assemblage. The environment focuses on exposing kids to new media and ideas, and allowing free expression to come through! While artistic skills are introduced, our focus is always on the reflective process of art-making in a way that empowers each child.
During the three days, artists will work on projects - individually and collectively - that are inspired by timeless themes in Shakepeare's works, such as: autonomy and identity, greed and corruption, illusion and reality, order and chaos, love and loss, comedy and tragedy. Brief introductions to Shakespeare's works and themes gives a basic context to enrich the art-making experience.
We will also display a number of creations in the lobby for our A Midsummer Night's Rock performances, and are seeking other local venues for displaying the works in our community.
