Vacation MakerCamp at Green Mountain Performing Arts

Vacation MakerCamp at Green Mountain Performing Arts
Description:

The Why
Out-of-school learning programs in the summer months provide critical support and enriching experiences for children and teens.
A safe, healthy environment over the summer weeks can make all the difference in a child’s inner and outer well-being. The opportunity to discover or pursue passions is invaluable.
Self-confidence soars as collaborative abilities strengthen during camp experiences that develop age-appropriate skills.
The How
Get absorbed in imaginative, creative projects that whiz, buzz, jitter, wobble, wiggle, blink, and shine.
Learn about electrical circuitry and take away items that you may wish to continue working on at home
The What
Participants may choose to integrate their creations into video expressions that can be filmed and edited to include sound and animations.
With a wide variety of materials and digital media, this program experience will include construction of cardboard pinball machines, simple robots, and simple electronic wearable items.
Both an imaginative and creative outlet for vacation fun AND a structured opportunity to use building tools and follow a progression of skill-building.
We will build small robots, hack into electronic toys, and create wearable electronics such as bracelets, hats, hairbands, etc.
To learn about electrical circuitry, we'll use LEDs, coincell batteries and conductive materials such as thread, paint, and electro-dough.
We'll use hobby motors, alligator clips, and battery packs, and more.
We may even use a sewing machine, a soldering iron, or a dremel -- maybe even all three.

Time: 2/26/18 9:00am - 8/25/18 3:00am

From Fear to Joy: Discover Your Inner Singer

From Fear to Joy: Discover Your Inner Singer Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Nancy Salwen leads this weekend workshop/retreat for “non-singers,” beginning singers, or anyone who wants to become more confident and expressive with their voice!

Claim your birthright, and step into the joy of singing! Whether you’re a “non-singer” who wishes you could sing, or a more experienced singer who would like to delve deeper into the magic of your own voice, this weekend retreat/workshop is for you!


- If you can talk you can sing! — yes, EVEN YOU!!
- Learn in a way that’s supportive, comfortable & fun
- Discover or re-discover your unique voice
- Feel the sound of your own voice in a whole new way
- Experience the profound joy of singing in a supportive group
- Become more confident – experience some singing success!
- Empower yourself by doing things you didn’t think you could!
- Take home new skills & tools to continue the journey!

"I really surprised myself, in many ways. I had a wonderful time and came away with more confidence than I felt possible!”
– A Workshop Participant

Through a combination of games, improvisation and simple songs from around the world we’ll explore different aspects of the voice.
Did you know that adults & teens can learn to sing in much the same way a child learns language — through immersion and play?!
In that spirit, we’ll…


- Create a space of non-judgement, and replace the “cringe,” with curiosity!
- Make all kinds of crazy sounds and noises — just to discover what we’ve got!
- Learn to listen differently and more deeply.
- Discover the profound joy of boldly singing with other people!
- Dig into different learning styles, discovering YOUR best inroads to music learning.
- Discuss the basics of music theory, so you’ll understand more about how songs work.
- Sing familiar songs and learn new ones!


We’ll create a tool kit of accessible techniques for you to take home and use as you develop your skills. Discover the joy of your unique voice and let go of that old idea that singing isn’t for you!


"Nancy has helped me along the journey of bringing what I hear inside my head into the world. She brings a patience and a kindness to her process that focuses on joy and emphasizes the pleasure of singing. She has helped me replace my perceptions of singing failure with success, and anxiety with relaxation.” – Chris, Singing Student

ARTURO DELMONI VIOLINIST – Violinist Arturo Delmoni’s remarkably distinctive violin playing embodies the romantic warmth that was the special genius of the great virtuosi of the golden age of violin playing. Audiences everywhere have fallen under the spell of his technical mastery and immediate emotional communication. His stylish, elegant interpretations of classical masterpieces have earned him critical acclaim in the United States and abroad. Arturo has appeared as a recitalist throughout the United States and in Europe, the Middle East, Japan, and Hong Kong. Arturo received his first violin lessons at age four, and soon came to the attention of Dorothy DeLay of the Juilliard School. His public career had already begun with recitals and a network television appearance when he entered Juilliard as a Naumburg scholarship student. He continued his studies with Miss DeLay, Ivan Galamian, and with Josef Gingold during summers at the Meadowmount School.

Vacation MakerCamp at Green Mountain Performing Arts

Vacation MakerCamp at Green Mountain Performing Arts
Description:

The Why
Out-of-school learning programs in the summer months provide critical support and enriching experiences for children and teens.
A safe, healthy environment over the summer weeks can make all the difference in a child’s inner and outer well-being. The opportunity to discover or pursue passions is invaluable.
Self-confidence soars as collaborative abilities strengthen during camp experiences that develop age-appropriate skills.
The How
Get absorbed in imaginative, creative projects that whiz, buzz, jitter, wobble, wiggle, blink, and shine.
Learn about electrical circuitry and take away items that you may wish to continue working on at home
The What
Participants may choose to integrate their creations into video expressions that can be filmed and edited to include sound and animations.
With a wide variety of materials and digital media, this program experience will include construction of cardboard pinball machines, simple robots, and simple electronic wearable items.
Both an imaginative and creative outlet for vacation fun AND a structured opportunity to use building tools and follow a progression of skill-building.
We will build small robots, hack into electronic toys, and create wearable electronics such as bracelets, hats, hairbands, etc.
To learn about electrical circuitry, we'll use LEDs, coincell batteries and conductive materials such as thread, paint, and electro-dough.
We'll use hobby motors, alligator clips, and battery packs, and more.
We may even use a sewing machine, a soldering iron, or a dremel -- maybe even all three.

Time: 2/26/18 9:00am - 8/25/18 3:00am
Location: 37 Commercial Street, Waterbury
