Summer Arts Learning at Elizabeth Seton High School for youth ages 7 – 13 in partnership with Joe’s Movement Emporium and End Time Harvest Ministries
BLADENSBURG, MD— Enrollment is now open for Summer Arts Learning at Seton with Joe’s Movement Emporium for ages 7 – 13 June of 2018. Camps will feature visual arts, dance, and music programming. Each two-week camp has unique curriculum that culminates in a performance showcase and art exhibition. The camp runs for two sessions: July 9 – 20 and July 23 – August 3, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Elizabeth Seton High School, 5715 Emerson St, Bladensburg, MD. To register: http://www.joesmovement.org/seton.
Summer Arts Learning at Elizabeth Seton High School is an expansion of Joe’s Movement Emporium’s current arts education programs. Joe’s own popular summer program, Camp Joe’s, grew out of Club Joe’s, an arts-based after-care program for elementary aged youth, which is celebrating 20 years of service this year. The recent popularity of these two programs has seen many students who seek arts education experiences turned away due to lack of space or scholarship funding. Joe’s has long dreamed to expand its reach and provide access to arts education through partnerships like this on with Elizabeth Seton High School and End Time Harvest Ministries.
“Not enough children in Prince George’s County have access to affordable, accessible and incredible arts programming. Arts education is basic human development. I’m so grateful to people like Sister Ellen Marie for her vision to use Seton’s beautiful facility to serve her community. Without partnerships like these,” says Brooke Kidd, Founder and Executive Director of Joe’s Movement Emporium, “Joe’s may not have the opportunity to extend our reach to so many new families and students.”
“And Elizabeth Seton High School is equally as thrilled to collaborate with Joe’s Movement Emporium and End Time Harvest Ministries in strengthening the community through arts engagement. Seton has been a long-time member of the surrounding area, and we are eager to deepen a sense of belonging in families so that they can access the services that are available to them and improve the lives of their children,” says Sister Ellen Marie, a graduate of Seton and a native of the area.
Parents praise for Joe’s arts education programs continues to roll in: “The staff at Joe’s are top notch and really care about their students. There is nothing comparable in our area.” “Joe’s has brought out talents in my children that I didn’t know they had: tumbling! comedy! dance! the joy of performance and creativity! I truly think it will last a lifetime.” “I appreciate Joe’s focus on creativity in motion, especially in this day in age where we struggle to keep our kids active and fit. My kid always comes home tired from Joe’s… a good thing.”
