Core Program Activities:
Writing: Curriculum will be led by Author/Poet, Victoria Lopez. Many superb aspects of writing will be introduced to the students; prose, poetry, free verse, fiction story writing, and haiku are ideal exercises to introduce writing styles which entertain self-expression rather than focusing on topic specification or academia persuaded formats.
Music: Instructed by Violist, Valerie Lopez. Valerie will introduce the ideology of musicality through rhythmic exercises, introductory musical understanding, classical study and composition. A musician is not simply one who reads notes, and plays as is, but instead is one who finds an emotional connection to that which they are either enjoying, or creating.
Theatre: This is more than your average theatre class! Collaboratively, all instructors will lead the students in writing, staging, casting, rehearsing and performing their own original play. All aspects of creativity will be entertained, and encouraged, throughout this unique endeavor. We are thrilled to have model and actor, Antonio Villarreal, join us as an acting coach and as a Creative Impact summer camp instructor!
Visual Arts: Various local artists, who specialize is different styles and mediums, will work with the students to introduce them to a wide range of techniques and niches. Whether it be pen on paper, brush on canvas, stenciling and graffiti, typography or watercolor – surely there will be a stylistic approach which best suits your child’s skill set. The talented Vanessa Lopez will be our art instructor and will share her approach and skills in regard to varying mediums.
We will be highlighting the opportunities’ offered to artists through technology, website structure, broadcasting, and social media. Basic coding instruction will be taught to the children by CODE RGV professionals and volunteers.
