course details

 

COURSES FILL UP QUICKLY, SO REGISTER EARLY!

What better place to study Arts & Entertainment than in New York City? Students will have the chance to participate in classes and interactive workshops taught by local teaching artists. Topics include sketching and photography for Visual Arts students, and drama, dance, and musical theater for Performing Arts students (depending on staff availability).

 

Step out of the classroom and try your hand at photography or filmmaking, visit well-known New York art galleries, or attend a performance: the choice is yours depending on the track you sign up for! You'll leave this three-day weekend with a better understanding of how New York City's arts & entertainment scene has influenced the world.

Choose ONE of these tracks:

Performing Arts: Music, Dance, Acting, Theater 

Visual Arts: Art, Sketching, Photography

or sign up for two weekends and experience both!
