Registration is open for Of Moving Colors Productions’s summer arts camp, set for 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday through Friday, July 13 – 17. The camp, created for girls between ages 5-12, will offer a complete arts immersion including classes in dance, theatre, music and visual art.
“For one week, girls get to be actors, dancers, singers, artists and even producers,” Artistic Director Garland Goodwin Wilson says. “It’s a wonderful summer experience where young ladies experience all sorts of creative opportunities, make new friends and learn a great deal about working together to create something exciting.”
The summer arts camp participants will create an on-stage production inspired by the children’s book, “Flippy Goes on a Road Trippy,” by authors John Mese and Dawn Kelsey with illustrator Chanler Holden.
“The ‘Flippy’ books are some of my absolute favorites,” Wilson says. “We’ve adapted different stories each year, but to utilize a book by a Baton Rouge artist and writer is an added bonus. I think the campers will have a blast — and learn some good geography — as we go with Flippy … on a new ‘road trippy.’”
The camp will take place at First Presbyterian Church, 763 North Blvd. The cost is $150. Extended care hours are available from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. for an additional $10 per day. Registration covers all camp materials and refreshments. Lunch will be provided.
