2023 SUMMER FUN IN THE ARTS CATALOG

Registrations for our Summer Fun in the Arts programing for children and teens, rising grades K-12, is now open for registrations! (Click the link above)

At HCA we believe that an arts education is part of a well-rounded education. Our artist-instructors are here not only to teach, but to help students build skills in teamwork, problem solving, and creative thinking. Our students come from all over the MetroWest region to enjoy the many outstanding programs we have to offer in Ceramics, Dance, Movie-Making, Music, Theater, and Visual Art. 

We have scheduled 8-weeks of creative classes for students of all ages. Plus, students can expect to spend lots of time outdoors enjoying the fresh air and time with friends. Register early for the best selection, and to take advantage of our summer early registration discount which ends February 12, 2023.

Students in our Little Explorers program (rising grades K-2) have options of one-week half day programs designed to make participants in the first half of elementary school feel right at home. Arts activities are based on a new creative theme each week allowing for lots of exploration and imaginative play. Parents have the option to sign their student up for visual arts and music combination or dance in the mornings, while the afternoon’s explore drama, singing and movement in our Musical Theater Fun program. Both morning and afternoon sessions have the same weekly theme, but do not repeat content and include story time, imaginative play, crafts, and games.

Rising 3rd–6th grades (with some options for those going into 2nd grade) will take part in our ArtsFocus programs that enable students to focus on their selected art forms. Instructors promote exploration of materials and discovery of the creative voice through the visual arts, ceramics, theater, music, dance, and movie making! For students going into 7th–12th grade our Artist Workshops should prove to be the right fit! In all workshops, instructors focus on skill development and discovery of creative voice, and an encouraging environment for constructive feedback and exploring the creative process. These workshops are a great opportunity to explore your artistic talents, build your portfolio, or just learn a new skill you’ve been curious about trying!

We know that you have many choices when it comes to selecting summer programs, so please reach out to us if you have any questions. To register for our Summer Fun in the Arts programs click on the interactive catalog below. We look forward to seeing you for a summer of fun at the HCA!
