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.

WE'RE TURNING 10!

Compass Arts 10 Years

Compass Arts is turning 10! That’s right, we’ve been here in the greater Beacon area for a decade, creating arts-rich programming and educational experiences for all ages. To honor this milestone and to support the process of establishing our new home in the Beacon Music Factory building, we’re launching a fundraiser! And there are some fabulous gifts for you when you donate as well!

SUMMER PROGRAMS!

Compass Arts Team Creative Directions

Elements is the quintessential Compass Arts program that merges various arts-pursuits, sensory activities and science into a wonderful messy whole, and this summer we're partnering with Common Ground Farm to provide a rich backdrop for the Elements experience. Along with some outstanding community events and mainstays like Musical Stew we're supporting the community experience while preparing for our new Compass Arts Enrichment Center location (shh... news on that coming soon!).

    Creativity Art Music Theater Writing Dance Film AnimationElements Outside at Common Ground Farm!
    A partnership with Common Ground Farm
    For 3 to 6 year-olds with caregiver, but little siblings welcome
    Wednesdays,  10am-11am, July 14 to August 18, 2021

    In this round of Elements, we will learn and play through song, dance, art and sensory activities using natural materials at Common Ground Farm! Taking a thematic approach, students will be guided through a fusion of arts exploration with scientific concepts interwoven throughout. Together we will make a connection with the natural world as it presents itself in a farm setting, giving the children a multifaceted understanding of the world around them that is developmentally on target for their age.
