Workshops

Acoustic Adventure

  • Chris Becom
  • Sessions 4&5
    July 7-18*
  • Ages 10-13
  • $400 per workshop, two-week session
Find out how bluegrass and the folk tradition started in Appalachia. Find out why Raleigh is a “metal” town and Chapel Hill was known for “grunge” before there was a Seattle? Make the first steps to continuing the music tradition and becoming part of a new folklore. We’ll work with rock music, fiddle music, African percussion, etc. Musicians can create unique sounds with acoustic instruments and voice. We’ll include harmonica, conga drum, and banjo. Musical experience is welcomed but not a requirement.

Clothing Collage

Ransack your closet or the thrift shop to find specialty garments, or take your favorite jeans and a T-shirt and transform them into a work of Art to Wear. Express YOURSELF artistically. We will use paints, dyes, needle and thread, anything to create an expressive piece of art that can be worn. Campers will contemplate who they are or wish to be and devise ways to express themselves through their wearable art. We will add a hat and stage a fashion show at the end of camp. This camp is an excellent way to gain the rudiments of costume making for theater and dance or to personalize your own clothing and make a statement.
