The second session of the Summer Arts Camp of the GK Music and Fine Arts Academy got underway on Monday and there are available spots for students interested in a wide variety of subjects.

The camp is being offered in the 5,000-square-foot studio located at 582 Commerce Court, directly south of Home Depot.

“This is a great opportunity for your child to learn about art, drama, and music,” said instructor Lisa Rowe. 

Classes are being held throughout the weeks ahead with the morning sessions scheduled from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Afternoon classes are offered between 1 and 6. 

“This is an amazing program and we would love to have your child be part of it,” Rowe said.

The summer camp dovetails with the music and fine arts academy’s fall offerings, with a variety of creative drama, music and fine arts classes available for students of all ages. The list of classes is designed to broaden students’ abilities and perspective while fostering creativity and love of the arts, she noted.

Enrollment for the September classes closes on Sept. 1 with a required two student minimum for each class.  For more information, call (209) 923-4121.

The fall program includes:

• Art Fundamentals for 3 ½- to 5-year-old children, which explores the skills and knowledge in the basic principles of art, begins in September. Each 45-minute class is age appropriate and is held on the four Saturdays in September. Similar art classes are held throughout the week for age groups 6-10 and 11 to 18 years old. 

• Students 10 to 13 will be introduced to the art of Zentangle as they learn four official patterns using traditional materials.  The 75-minute classes will also be taught throughout September. 

• Other classes include the “Introduction to Clay,” and the “Dinner Theatre,” along with the “Improv Theatre,” for ages 10 to 18. Students will learn to perform on the spot with little or no preparation. Students will also be taught to work together to create characters and to tell a story performing a range of styles as they develop their brain storming and communication skills.
