SPRING CLASSES ARE UP

Registration is now open for our spring trimester! We've got a full week of morning classes for our youngest students and some excellent opportunities for after school, too.

SIGHTS & SOUNDS

A responsive painting experience curated by our own Romina Robinson. The beautiful concept of interconnected senses, or synesthesia, will be the focus of our upcoming free event "Sights & Sounds" at the Pete and Toshi Seeger Riverfront Park. The inimitable New MUSE 4tet will perform two consecutive sets, during which you may choose to paint collaboratively with other audience members on one of our large scale canvases, or select your favorite from a range of provided drawing materials to work independently. This is a FREE event, but please make reservations here--> https://sightsandsounds.brownpapertickets.com/

COMPASS ARTS IN THE COMMUNITY

Compass Arts LOVES to provide free experiences whenever and wherever we can. Click through for a list of the upcoming FREE events in 2022 either hosted by CACP or an event where we'll be offering a free activity table or ensemble performance.

ARTS POTPOURRI DANCE MAKERS

What are the elements of a story? What tools can we use to tell this story? We will use our body and space (and screen) to create a collaborative performance experience.

TCD IMPROV

Join us for some end-of-the-school-year fun with improv and theater games class for middle school students. We’ll play a variety of improvisation and theater games that encourage creativity, team building, quick thinking, and communication skills, as well as being ridiculously fun.

TCD DRAWING, CARTOONING

This intermediate class will focus on illustrating ideas, mood, and character through line, color, texture and form with consideration of perspective and composition.

MINI CAMPS!

Compass Arts Mini Camps are running June 27-July 18 from 9am-1pm. Each week we will focus on two different art forms and how they can interact and influence each other.

PERFORMING ARTS CAMP

Inspired by productions like Sleep No More and the natural beauty of Beacon, this camp will involve the creation of a site-specific, immersive theatrical piece using music, theater, improvisation, dance, art, design, and writing.

SUMMER SNAPS PHOTOGRAPHY

We look at images all the time, but how do we make photos that tell our OWN story? Summer Snaps is a week-long camp for youth who are curious about photography and want to learn more about how to make great pictures.

Compass Arts Creativity Project classes, ensembles, events and camps are created for the Beacon and surrounding communities for the purpose of building those communities. Our vision is a big one. As a creativity project, we believe that communities are stronger when problem solving skills are encouraged at every age level and that the best way to build problem solving skills is through creativity. Through creative arts exploration students are given opportunities to think, and to think for themselves--to feel empowered by coming up with a story plot twist or an ending to a play or to discover the joy of being able to improvise over a musical accompaniment. We believe that our best work involves encouraging contribution, whether it is a colorful swipe of a brush, a melody or an idea. The essence of what we hope to do at Compass Arts is this, that those sometimes large and sometimes small contributions allow students to evolve into something the world desperately needs--individuals with vision.
