A Case for Lifelong Imagining
At Little Lake, not only do we enjoy performing for you, we also enjoy providing opportunities for you to explore the art of “play-making.” For children, we offer two sessions of Theatre Arts Summer Camp. For adults, we offer an acting class called “ I Can Do That!”
“ I like acting because, when I do it, it makes me feel my courage.”—Stephen, Age 7.
Doesn’t that statement make your heart soar! This is why it is important to involve kids in the arts; to take them to plays; and to promote opportunities for them to participate in theater, dance or music. The arts foster engaged learning. How, for example, did you learn your ABCs? Through song? Self-confidence blossoms when given the opportunity to participate in arts activities.
The arts do not insist upon “right” answers. Every participant’s contribution is valid and worthy. At the same time, the arts necessitate a disciplined focus and a spirit that welcomes adventure and collaboration. The arts build bridges to new ideas, new insights. Every one of us should be reminded to imagine; be given permission to engage in imagining throughout our lifetime.
And, besides all this…the arts are fun!
Join us for some imagining.
