Theater: The Imagination Stage
This class introduces students to theater. Throughout the week, children learn to project their voices, body movement, and how to build a character through enjoyable workshops and practical applications. The workshops culminate with students performing a short one-act play.

Photography FUNdamentals
Students must bring a digital camera on the first day of class and for the remainder of the week. This class introduces students to the basics of photography and explores how to create a successful photograph. Students will be shooting in- and out-of-doors on-campus as well as learning basic Photoshop editing skills in ISU’s Mac Lab. 

Drawing Your World: Thinking about People, Places, and Things!
This intermediate drawing class explores the surrounding world. Students learn and improve upon drawing skills. Class begins with designing personal folders that hold students’ drawings. After learning basic perceptual drawing skills, students focus on a different subject every day: people in proportion, places in perspective, and things in their “space”. 

Piano Pizzazz
Throughout the week, students use songs, games and hands-on activities to learn musical basics that prepare them for piano lessons. To learn about the concepts of beat and rhythm, children make their own percussion instruments and participate in group music-making. A variety of different song- and motion-based games and activities are used to learn about pitch. The basics of music notation and the piano keyboard are taught in a fun, game-based format. 

African Drumming, Singing and Dancing
This is an interactive music class focusing on the basics of rhythm, pulse, and musical creativity while promoting social cohesion and self-esteem. Students learn to play a variety of percussion instruments from Africa, such as drums, wood blocks, shakers and bells. The music class also includes African songs, dances, and games.
