 In this camp, students will build self-esteem together through music exploration and instruction. Regardless of musical experience, campers will receive instrument instruction, form a band, write an original song, and perform at Family Friendly Friday on June 15th at the Top Hat Lounge. They will have the opportunity to learn song-writing, guitar, bass, drums, vocals, and keyboards while having musical freedom to create their own songs. The final show at The Top Hat will be an incredible display of their collective work.

This class will address the fundamentals involved in creating that unique art form, that we called cartooning. We will go over the basics of drawing cartoons - single and multi-panel comics, supported by "how-to" lessons on drawing faces, backgrounds, lettering, coming up with gags and storylines, and compiling our results in the latest volume of ZACC Comics. The class will collaborate on the creation of a comic book and each camper will take home a copy. Taught by Tim Thornton.
