ARTISO is Art InSide Out and is dedicated to empowering youth to positively express themselves through the arts from the inside and out. This highly collaborative program is a lab for creativity made up of enthusiastic youth and Teaching Artists from many different places and culminates in an original production. ARTISO encourages teamwork, builds a sense of community and global awareness on the outside while also developing individual self-confidence and self-esteem on the inside. Offering daily physical fitness and providing well-balanced meals also serves the whole child INSIDE and OUT. This program will serve up to 60 youth from four to seven eligible afterschool sites. All sessions will take place at the Kravis Center with a portion of the programming occurring over Spring Break.
Take a group of talented imaginative kids who share a common interest in the performing arts and pit then in an environment where they can nurture their creativity and the result is ArtsCamp! Visit kravis.org/artscamp for more information.
