FALL/WINTER CLASSES ARE UP!

We are so excited to welcome the Compass Arts community into our brand new space at the Beacon Music Factory

WINTER CLASSES DELAYED

In response to the current covid surge we have decided to delay the start date for many of our upcoming winter classes. Please check our classes page to see if your class will be starting two weeks later than originally planned.

GINA SAMARDGE ON BEACONITES PODCAST

Have you ever wondered about the origins of Compass Arts, the vision/ideals behind all these playful creative classes, and the person who drives us forward? Well perfect, because there is a podcast you will want to hear!

DUNGEONS & DRAGONS

Did you know we host a DUNGEONS and DRAGONS campaign at Compass Arts? With two sections, one for 5th-7th grade, and one for 7th-9th grade, we have a spot for you if you are interested in learning more about this popular role playing game!

MUSIC AND MINDFULNESS

Join in on the play with your child as we blend yoga asana, breathing practices, age appropriate meditation and lots of awesome music to create a fun and engaging program.

TACTILE EXPLORERS

Tactile Explorers is an arts based class for children ages 18 months-3 years old. Through thoughtfully arranged "invitations to create," little ones will be empowered to make choices, explore ideas, and discover materials that just might result in squeals of delight.

ELEMENTS

We are thrilled to bring back this beloved class that combines music, art, science, and sensory play. Using a thematic approach, students will be guided in magical explorations of music and art through stories, music, movement, art-making, and natural materials.

INTRO TO MODERN DANCE

Modern Dance began as a rebellion of ballet in the early 20th century from an urge to dance without traditional limitations. In this class we will practice technical skills, improvisation and composition beginning with a warm-up that includes strength, flexibility, floor work and standing exercises.

ROMPATOM

A youth choir with a twist, Rompatom Middle and High School Choir and Music Ensemble will primarily focus on a wide variety of choral music repertoire (indie pop, folk, classical, musical theater, jazz, etc.) with instrumental opportunities on percussion, ukulele, recorder, or instruments that the students are studying privately.

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.
