    Arts By The Lake summer camp

    Arts by the Lake is a new multi-arts summer camp for children ages 9-14. This collaboration between the newly renovated Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning and Queen's Conservatory of Music offers young people an opportunity to explore a variety of art forms over the course of a week, and present a concert/exhibition on Friday afternoon for family and friends. Each day, all participants will spend a half-day in music ensemble instruction using band instruments. The other part of the day will be divided into a non-musical Arts Focus Stream and Arts Sampler activities. Non-musical art options will include dance, jewelry making, photography and pottery. No prior experience in any art form is required - only an open mind to learning new things! It will run in two 1-week sessions: Aug 10-14 and Aug 17-21, 2015.
