FULL- Art & Music Camp Monday, April 18- Friday, April 22, 9am to 3pm

What happens when music and art collide? In this experimental camp, students will explore sound-to-color Synesthesia by blending musical and artistic activities. By blurring the borders between these mediums, we hope to highlight the magic of both! Join us and create works of music-inspired art, custom album covers, and other hands-on/ears-on projects!
