Fine Arts Camp provides
an outlet to dance, draw, paint, act, sing and play instruments

 

Indianapolis Public Schools students didn’t spend their entire
spring break sleeping in or watching countless hours of television. Many
actually boarded school buses and headed back to the classroom, but not for what
you think.

Hundreds participated
in the IPS Fine Arts Camp on March 28 – April 1 at five district schools
throughout the city. Students in Grades 1 – 6 immersed themselves in the art
of dance, theater, visual art, instrumental and vocal music from 9 a.m. to noon
daily.

Between 280 and 300 students participated in the free
weeklong camp, said David Newman, IPS fine arts instructional coach. Breakfast
was served daily and students were offered snacks to take home.

During camp, multiple art forms were provided at each school
except for Nicholson Performing Arts Academy at School 70, where dance was the
specialty.

Here’s a sampling of what children did during camp at each school:

 

  • At Arlington
    Woods School 99
    , students performed “The Three Little Pigs.”
  • Students played the violin and drums with Susan
    Silas, and created watercolors, murals, self-portraits and landscapes with visual
    artist Carol White at Center for Inquiry
    School 84
    .
  • “The Jade Dragon and the Golden Phoenix” was
    performed at Eleanor Skillen School 34.
  • Youngsters created Picasso-inspired Cubism and
    abstract dream drawings at Carl Wilde School
    79
    .
  • Students at Nicholson
    Performing Arts Academy
    dabbled in many styles of dance. They took West
    African classes with Ronne Stone, met a ballerina and learned what it takes to
    dance en pointe and perfected their hip-hop moves.

 

In addition to the Fine Arts Camp, Newman said around 70 IPS
students in Grades 2 – 5 participated in an enrichment camp (science and math)
during spring break.
