SPRINGVILLE — The Springville Center for the Arts will be holding summer workshops, in a variety of different areas, in the upcoming months.
The Springville Center for the Arts’ stated mission is to encourage participation in the arts, by all segments of the community. The organization fulfills its mission by maintaining a center to house performances, hosting exhibitions and educational and other art programs.
Musical Theater Camp 1: “Annie,” will be held June 24 – July 6, Monday – Friday, from 12 – 3 p.m. This camp is for children who will be entering grades three – eight. The stated purpose of this camp is to help explore the building blocks of musical theater and stage a theater production of “Annie.”
Another event planned for this summer is a comedy improv workshop. These will take place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7 p.m. There will be a total of 12 sessions, beginning on June 27. All children entering grades six – 12 are invited. Sessions will be instructor-facilitated improvisation styles, complete with theater games, group scenes and a final, informal performance.
All SCA summer workshops are run in association with Springville Youth Incorporated; online registration is available at www.syionline.org.
The SCA’s main location is 37 North Buffalo St., but the center has also opened an Arts Underground store, which focuses on fine, craft and small, local artwork.
Pottery, woodwork, fiber arts, jewelry and sculpture are some of the types of art displayed at this new location. The store is located at 66 East Main St., in Springville, and is open from 12 p.m. – 6 p.m., Tuesday – Friday. On Saturdays, hours are from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
