Get Lifted Summer Camp

Our mission for the Elevation Arts Summer Camp is developing dedicated, serious young artists through various forms of art.  We believe that creative arts can help equip our youth with skills needed to thrive in everyday life, and can also be a form of therapy in addition to bringing out the natural gifts and talents of our children.

The Benefits:

What are the benefits of sending your budding artist to Elevation Arts?

Creativity

This is stating the obvious but to break it down a bit more, if adolescents practice thinking creatively, and bringing their thoughts and ideas to life it will come naturally to them and will help them in their future career in any field (not just creative fields).

 

Helps Improve Academic Performance

The skills learned because of participation in and regular practice of art education spills over into academic achievement. According to PBS, A report by Americans for the Arts states that young people who participate regularly in the arts (3 hours a day, 3 days each week through one full year) are four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement, to participate in a math and science fair or to win an award for writing an essay or poem than children who do not participate.

 

Confidence

Mastering a skill builds confidence. Creating and expressing oneself through visual art and presenting your creation to others helps participants to step outside of their comfort zone. As they improve and see their own progress, their self-confidence will continue to grow.

 

Visual Learning

Drawing, painting, sculpting, etc. helps develop visual-spatial skills. Art teaches participants how to interpret, criticize, and use visual information, it also teaches how to make choices based on visual information.

 

Decision Making

Art develops problem solving and critical thinking skills which are valuable skills needed in life. How do I express this feeling through my painting? What colors/shapes will be most effective? Learning how to make choices and decisions will carry over into their education and other parts of life.

 

Self-Expression

Participants are taught how to express themselves and their emotions through art and learn various ways to complete an art project. They also have the opportunity to interpret other works of art, from classmates and established artists.

Perseverance

There is power in perseverance and mastering a skill takes a lot of it. Continued practice and seeing the end result of that practice teaches that hard work and perseverance pay off! This mindset is imperative in order to thrive and be successful not only in a career but in life.

 

Focus

As participants persevere through developing and enhancing artistic skills, focus is imperative.  It is vital for studying and learning in class as well as in adulthood later in life.

 

Risk Taking

The open-ended nature of art allows participants to take more risks in their art work. There isn’t as much pressure during the creative process knowing that the finished product will be solely an expression of themselves and doesn’t need to look like someone else’s creation.

Safety & Security

We have procedures in place to ensure the safety of staff and participants. The front entrance has a camera and intercom system. Anyone entering the building must identify themselves and their reason for being there BEFORE they can enter the building. Only authorized persons may pick up participants.

All staff is trained in CPR but we have a dedicated nurse on staff who will be in the building just in case of emergencies.
