Busy Thursdays

We have had a very busy Thursday at DAC! Our campers have been creating and rehearsing all day. Our performance track campers are digging into to their dances, songs, and the play.

Our visual campers are making masterpieces!

Our drawers and painters are pulling their ideas together to fill the mural. They have their paper laid out for inspiration!

The afternoon adventurers met local painter Will Thomas. He shared his amazing work with us and held a Q&A with the campers!

Come to the Cabaret!

We are back for another week of cultural camp! We have hit the ground running and we are learning all about cabaret. Our visual campers are decorating tiles made of clay.

Our drawing and painting class is studying some new subject matter to create their next art works.

The dancers are listening as Ms. Jessie critiques their performance and they try out some new techniques.

Afternoon Adventures had the pleasure of meeting Latin artist Rafael Osuba. Rafael spoke about his work and helped the campers find their inner artist!

It is time to create!

Another fun day as we explore Durham during our July 4th week camp!  The campers are continuing to create beautiful artwork  and later our Afternoon Adventurers will head off to the Scrap Exchange to stock up on some creative reuse supplies.

Fun with Visual art!

Our creative kids are having a great time and showing their sweet smiles while creating art celebrating eSwatini.

In Mixed Media they are sewing spiders!

Our drawing and painting class is working hard on the mural and the elements that will be added.

And of course, no Wednesday at the DAC is complete without a trip to the downtown farmers market!

Beating the Rainy Day Blues

On this rainy day at DAC, the group 1 dancers are working together to learn their dance for the performance. Baba Stafford is keeping them busy!

Ms. Erin and Ms. Kim are making sure that everyone knows their positions!

Check in tomorrow to see what our visual track campers are up to!
