Creative Arts Workshops

LTYC Creative Arts workshops introduce students to a conservatory model based structure of arts learning, LTYC’s ARTS CORE (Achieving Results by Transforming Students through Creative, Open, Reflective Expression) helping students find ways to express themselves artistically, while simultaneously supporting ways of thinking and learning that benefit them academically.  Elements of leadership are embedded in this workshop, as students are exposed to a variety of instruction that promotes them becoming better artists and citizens. This interactive creative arts workshop focuses on students creating, performing, producing, presenting, responding and connecting in the arts. Through practical and experiential learning, students will collaborate to make meaning through the arts and understand how the arts connect to their daily lives.

•Beginning acting techniques like improvisation
