Shuswap Kids Arts

Dear Parents of creative kids, there will be THREE kids summer day camp programs at Shuswap Theatre for summer 2019. I (Michelle Atkins) have been running these programs in Salmon Arm during the summer for the past 8 years. I am a teacher in the local School District with a background in drama and fine arts. We have a blast together at each camp! Its highly creative and there is room for *all kinds of kids* (The actors, writers, costume makers, directors, stage managers, assistants, artist, quirky creators, experimenters, crazy painters, quiet sketchers)  THEATRE & ART IS LIFE!!!!   Read Parent Testimonials

DRAMA DAY CAMPS   We CREATE PLAYS FOR THE STAGE from the ground up! The kids create the theme , the storyline, characters and scenes⭐️ I help facilitate the process — while always keeping in mind the KIDS IDEAS AND INSPIRATION. It’s an amazing process to be a part of. We include INSTRUMENTS, COSTUMES & SOUNDSCAPES . The kids make posters and tickets .There’s no limit to what is possible!! Drama Camp is where it’s at for the creative kids!! I just love these camps. So much fun for all involved !!It’s also a nice break to be in a COOL NON-SMOKY SPACE for summer at Shuswap Theatre!!

ART DAY CAMPS This art camp is different than ALL other art camps out there! Its completely in MY STYLE which is INSPIRED CREATIVITY, skills based and also creative and problem solving based. Its about art supplies galore, choice, selection, & finding our own art style while experimenting with supplies. Its about BEING UNIQUE and not painting by number or having all the art look the same. I BELIEVE every child is an artist if they are coached, inspired and motivated by positivity, creativity, music, friends and learning new skills. I teach the skills and mini lessons and then the kids get to explore with supplies to create what they want. We ALSO LOVE TO BUILD out of recycled supplies and create from our hearts! It’s a nice break to be in a COOL NON-SMOKY SPACE.
