BART: Art for Middle School Boys
August 14-18, 9am-3pm (M-F)
$300 DAC Members / $325 Non-Members
The Boys Art and Leadership program (BART) was established in 2015 for art-loving boys going into or currently enrolled in Middle School (Ages 12-15). BART features multiple creative sessions taught by local artists, and uses arts curriculum as a framework for adolescent boys to address issues of building relationships, personal identity, goal setting, problem solving and independent thinking while nurturing creativity and leadership.
Artist Dan Groth will be leading the 3rd annual BART. The theme this year is CHANGES. Art and theater workshops will incorporate the theme into hands-on building, writing, character creations and painting. Groth will be joined by local teaching artists who will conduct a variety of workshops each day.
Participants of the BART program are invited through a nomination process by peers, teachers, parents and community members. Need-based scholarships are available for this program.
