Silver Spur Arts Academy's InSPURational Summer Camp!
July 16 - July 20, 2012
‘Imagination Station’ Classes & Camps for CenTex Kids (9-18)
July 16-20 at Salado Silver Spur Arts Academy
Week-long camp inspires aspiring young artists and performers
The second of three, week-long, fun-learning “InSPURational Summer” sessions for aspiring young artists and performers in Central Texas gets underway Monday, July 16, at the Silver Spur Theater (108 Royal St.) in historic Downtown Salado.
The Silver Spur Arts Academy’s July session – for children ages nine to 18 – offers a unique, creativity-cultivating camp and outreach program. Openings are still available, and additional programs are available for external groups and locations.
“Our students describe the summer camps in various ways,” said Tiffany Schreiner of Salado, the Academy co-founder who has more than 25 years of experience in movement and dance instruction. Here are a few:
· “Where all the wild things are”;
· “Where it’s good to be a kid”;
· “Never Never Land nestled in the heart of Texas”;
· “The one-stop imagination station!”
“These youngsters are introduced to dance, drawing, crafting, crooning, painting, play-acting, moving, imagining and more,” Schreiner explained. “Each camp culminates with a fun, creative and quite festive finale for families and friends to explore and enjoy.”

“Our participants have a chance to learn visual and performing arts techniques in amazingly fun ways,” added Grainger Esch, SSAA co-founder and Creative Director of the Silver Spur. “It’s all about engaging their imaginations in creative and positive ways.”
Tuition for each the five-day camps is $185. Students are encouraged to bring a sack lunch or snack. Reservations for the camps are strongly encouraged since space is limited. The camps are offered on weekdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The third and final summer camp will be Aug. 6-10, also for students age 9-18. Focus of that session will be primarily on theater arts with instruction in performance, movement, dance, speech, singing, clowning, writing and improvisation.
