3 AGE GROUPS -

4-6 years from 10am to 12noon

7-9years from 10am to 2.30pm

10-13years from 10am to 3.30pm

 

The youngest age group did a variety of craft making, art, storytelling, movement and drama.

 

The two other groups had choices. They decided what they would mainly like to work on through the week. They got a taste of drama, movement, art and film. And they signed up for some of the following:

  • Make a short animation film

  • Create an art gallery (and your own work of art)

  • Make a short play

  • Intro to Hip Hop

All of these were achieved over the week.

THE 2012 SUMMER SCHOOL CAMP IS THE SUCCESSOR TO THE

WYA-GARTER LANE SUMMER SCHOOL

WHICH RAN FOR SEVERAL YEARS ENDING IN 2010

Garter Lane Arts Centre, one of Ireland’s largest arts centres, joined forces each summer with Waterford Youth Arts, the foremost youth arts organisation in the country, to present the Performing Arts Summer School. The Summer School took place each day for a week at Garter Lane Gallery, O’Connell Street and at Waterford Youth Arts, The Arch, Barrack Street, Waterford.

Skilled youth art practitioners from Waterford Youth Arts led a unique week, packed with various art forms including drama, dance, art, storytelling and video production for three different age groups: 4–6 years, 7-9 years, and 10-12 years.

It was good fun, confidence building, full of creativity and encouraged teamwork, and it was a chance to make new friends in a fun, safe environment.

The courses were age-specific and were presented at levels to suit everyone, so that experienced participants were challenged and inexperienced participants were encouraged to try out something new!
