Shakespeare in Action and UrbanArts will be running summer camps.
UrbanArts’ camp is called SummerArts, and the info is below:
SIA will have “two different camps in July as well as an additional August session for ages 10-14 that will take place at Assembly Hall (located in South Etobicoke).”
The first is our Groundlings Camp for ages 7-10. This year the Groundlings will be taking on Romeo & Juliet. As in previous years, we will be guiding them through the process of building a whole play from scratch, including costumes, props and sets. Of course, the Groundlings will be working with professional actors the entire time to develop their performances.
In our Nobles Camp (ages 11-14), we will be tackling the classic tale of Julius Caesar. Participants will get an opportunity to be challenged by SIA’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s iconic drama! From prop, set and costume design to scene and movement work campers will take a hands-on approach – all culminating in a fun and exciting performance for family and friends at Artscape Weston Common in North West Toronto.
We are also excited to have added on a THIRD session of camp magic this summer for Campers aged 10-14! This will run August 2nd-12th at Assembly Hall in South Etobicoke. In this fun and collaborative drama camp your child will be immersed in the exciting world of theatre making. This session of campers will explore and perform our very own adaptation of Shakespeare’s great romantic drama, Romeo and Juliet!
for participants to understand and share their thoughts/feelings towards the latest corona virus related events through the learning of different visual arts styles. Each week a new artist’s style will be featured to help participants create original artwork
The program starts Friday, February 11th and will be every Monday and Friday, from 4–5pm via Zoom.
Urban Arts is hosting Weston Road Flows this weekend (the 23rd and 24th).
A multi-media exhibition that explores the transitory nature of the former city of York through the main arterial road, Weston Road. The exhibition will display the past, present, and future of Weston through new pieces created by local artists. This project will explore the transformation of Weston from its humble beginnings as a village to the multicultural urban area of Toronto that it is today.”
The primary focus will be on a sound installation that incorporates historic recordings of the area and its residents with modern beats created by youth producers from York South-Weston. The stories and sceneries have continually changed in York, but Weston Road has always been a main ‘flow through’ and will continue to do so as the area undergoes even more change and development.
