Community Arts and Learning
Summer Camps and Activities
ARTS SMARTS CAMPS provide summer performing and visual arts opportunities for students of elementary and middle-school age. Music, Dance, Theater, and the Visual Arts are taught by teaching artists dedicated not only to their art forms, but to arts education. Each camp is designed to provide young people with the means to actively explore the beauty, diversity, and complexity of our world through the artistic process, generate an appreciation of the arts as a vital force in their lives, and enable them to develop their own creative voice through a genuine understanding of the art forms. The Arts Smarts Camps are also just plain fun (not to mention the best bargain in the area)!
Disability Arts and Access
With the establishment of a multidisciplinary Disability Studies program at Millersville University in 2013-14, new attention is being directed towards Disability Arts. With support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Association of Performing Arts Presenters & the MetLife Foundation, and the Lancaster County Community Foundation, Millersville is instituting tripartite Disability Arts programming.
We will introduce the campus and community to the work of professional artists from across the disability spectrum through performances, exhibitions, master classes, and workshops. Many tickets for these events are given to social service agencies at no cost.
