Summer Arts Academy
Although this is our tenth year, the 2020 Summer Arts Academy is experiencing a first … we’re going VIRTUAL!
While our wish would be to host classes at BISFA as planned, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions in place, we are moving the Summer Arts Academy ONLINE! Students will still have an extensive learning experience in a creative and supportive environment to grow as artists, writers, dancers, actors, musicians, and individuals.
This year will be a little different with virtual classes taught via Zoom or Google Classroom, but we’re excited to share this new experience with our students!
The Foundation will host a “Packet Pick-up Day”, where students/parents can pick up their packets and supplies for the camp. We’ve got you covered – all you need to do is register and be on the lookout for an email with more information!
Since our academies will be hosted online, participants must have access to a reliable internet connection.
All area students are welcome to join for the 10th annual (and first virtual) Summer Arts Academy!
