April Vacation Week

APRIL Vacation Week -
Exploration of Earth

Dates: April 18-21, 2023




At The Umbrella, we believe that everyone is an artist.  We have designed our April Vacation Week – Exploration of Earth program with variety in mind to give students the opportunity to discover, explore, and experiment in the arts. Our Vacation Week Program covers arts education for Grades K through Grade 8 instructed by experienced practicing artists, arts educators, and teachers. Small class sizes ensure plenty of individual attention and a safe learning environment.

Exploration of Earth Vacation Week will have students spending their April vacation week exploring how amazing & fascinating the earth is while seeing how art can have a positive impact on our planet! Students enrolled in the program will rotate through a variety of artistic mediums such as Painting, Drawing, Ceramics, Woodworking, Performing Arts and more! Each of the art disciplines will have an art activity related to our environmental theme. Help give back to the Earth and celebrate Earth Day through art this April Vacation!
