Creativity, art and self-expression can be such an important part of one’s growth and development. Not only are people, especially kids, able to express their personality, but there is no limit to what can be communicated through the arts. It doesn’t matter whether it is music, singing, acting, dancing, painting or writing: the possibilities for expression are endless. Now, imagine a place where budding young artists and creative thinkers come together to explore the art, nourish their sense of self and make lasting friendships.
Arts-X-press is a unique camp environment that values students’ individuality and helps cultivate an appreciation for the magic in life and the courage in to make meaningful contributions to their communities. For five days, incoming 7th and 8th grade students can make new friends, stay in a college dorm, enjoy campus meals and immerse themselves in the arts in a supportive and non-competitive environment. Here, students can be themselves unapologetically. Staff and counselors lead students in learning more skills in an art-form they already enjoy and help them venture into something new. They leave feeling more confident in themselves and with a support system filled with students just like them from all over Southern California.
