Young artists were given a backstage pass to the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts this summer as Brock’s Youth University held camps at the School for the first time this July and August.
More than 70 students from as far as Toronto attended, and participated in camps that focused on arts media, performing arts, or performance props and effects.
Angela McVittie, a parent of one of the participants, had positive feedback about the experience her daughter had at the camp.
“My daughter attended Performance Props & Effects camp last week at Marilyn I. Walker and this was an outstanding camp – and an excellent venue!” she said. “She loved the smaller more intimate feel of this camp and said she had time to become friends with every one there. The staff were incredible, inspiring and professional. The venue was easy to get to, with plenty of parking. I really hope camps will be continue to be offered there.”
The Rodman Hall Art Centre also hosted programming at the school.
