Upcoming Events & Programs


Ages 8-14
June 19-23
Mon. - Fri. 10am-1pm

Instructor:  Cheryl Miehl

The Gelli Plate is a tool that encourages play!  Join us as you learn to create amazing prints loaded with layers of color and design.  Prints can be just one layer, or have layer after layer building up the pattern and color to create 1-of-a-kind papers! We will explore printing many colors in a single “pull” of the plate, layering colors one “pull” at a time to build unique and interesting designs. We will use commercial stencils, and also learn to make our own stencils for more personalized designs. We will discuss color theory and composition, and use everyday objects to create textures. Lastly we will explore ways to hand color a finished print, and ways to use “junk” prints for other mixed media projects. The possibilities are endless with this versatile printmaking technique!

Camp fee includes $30.00 supply fee.

Do you provide mom and dad with lots of entertainment at home? Then bring your imagination and explore your talents in this magical adventure into acting. Theatre games and improvisation provide a wealth of new acting skills and self-confidence to budding actors!


Ages 8-12
(1 Week) June 19-23
Mon.-Fri. 6-7pm

Got the acting bug? While perhaps not as easy as accomplished actors make it seem, acting builds on techniques that you can learn and practice. In the Acting and Improvisation class, you will learn many techniques so important to auditioning and developing not only your acting abilities, but your self-confidence. This is your chance to explore audition basics, warm-up routines, script work, improvisation, scene study and character study. Action!
