After school enrichment for Shadydale

About 200 students from 11 elementary and middle schools performed at Hobby Center after working with visual and performing artists in their CASE summer after-school programs.
Students danced, performed plays and demonstrated their mastery of drums. Others created a video and a multi-media quilt.
“Quality after-school summer programs provide a world of opportunity for kids to acquire new hobbies,” said CASE Director Shannon Bishop. “Students also gain the opportunity to network with professionals while learning about possible performing and visual arts careers.”
North Forest’s Shadydale Elementary was among the schools that participated.
For four weeks, students enrolled in CASE after-school programs collaborated with local visual and performing arts pro-fessions in various genres. On Kids’ Day, students toured the famed Hobby Center for Performing Arts and heard from theater professionals about careers in production, management and business. CASE Kids’ Day Projects are fun, educational collaboratives that connect after-school programs to the world of work. Events give students opportunities to work with professionals in the arts, math, science and technology.
