Youth who participate in Creative Culture Camp will explore a variety of cultures through visual arts, music, dance, and drama. Students will explore the arts of various cultures to better understand and appreciate each culture and its history and traditions. They will also explore the diversity of media, genres, materials, processes, ideas, and purposes in the world of art.  Students will also take a virtual trip around the world exploring different genres of music.  The Creative Culture Camp will develop students conceptual and creative skills, instill the discipline and confidence necessary to investigate their own self-expression. Students will learn to be constructively critical of their own and others artwork while gaining the tools necessary to be competitive in a creative environment. With the knowledge that being an artist is a forever developing process, students learn the hard work and focus to push them beyond minimal expectations. Projects will be posted on YouTube, the Extension website, and Pinterest, giving them worldwide exposure.
