Summer (arts) loving: With CAC funding, these summer arts camps aim to cultivate minds and bodies

Longstanding cuts in funding to arts education have diminished the presence and influence of art during the school year. All the more important that area organizations are bringing more camp offerings with an arts focus back.

“For students, the school year is focused on academic studies and oftentimes, hobbies and creative activities are not the primary focus,” Anne-Marie Schwarz, vice president of advancement at The Music Settlement, laments.

The Music School Settlement, with locations in University Circle and Ohio City, is offering summer camps through its three departments of music, early childhood, and music therapy.

“Summer camps allow time to rebalance and learn to engage,” Schwarz concludes, “in creative arts, music, drama, sensory, and sampling [all of the genres] that ignite the individual and explore and express [themselves] in new ways.”

The Music School Settlement has more than 20 different camp offerings running from June 6 through August 6. Times and fees vary. Click here for more information and to register.
