Summer Art Samplers are Back...

Arts Samplers meet for 3 hours every day for one week, and include an hour of art every day and two other 45-minute classes in theater (every day), music, creative movement, more.  Two breaks between classes offer time for snack and reading aloud, outside under the trees in good weather.

Arts Samplers offer children a chance to explore and experience the arts, emphasizing engagement and creative process.  Children may work in age-differentiated groups or together.  Arts Samplers are fun and enriching workshops that many students return to summer after summer!

The schedule and art projects vary from week to week — students may enroll in one or more workshops.

Taught by Crozet Arts & Guest Teachers
(subject to change based on availability):

Boomie Pedersen (Theater), Tracy Diamond Allen (Theater), Sharon Tolczyk (Creative Movement), Lexy McCallum (Art), Liz Herlevsen (Art), Dr. Beth Cantrell (Cello), Terra Voce Flute & Cello Duo (Elizabeth Brightbill & Andrew Gabbert), Sue Chase (Folk Dance).
