Arts Explorers Program At Oddfellows Playhouse

Oddfellows Playhouse with collaboration with the Middletown Youth Services Bureau is forming a unique program called Arts Explorers. Art Explorers is a program blending intensive arts training with job readiness skills for students enrolled at Woodrow Wilson Middle School during the 2008-2008 school year. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about as well as "specialize" in three areas of artistic exploration (literary, performance, and visual arts). Working with professional mentor artists, by the end of the program students will have created and publicly released original work of art, from a new play, to a art gallery, to a literary magazine, or anything a mind can imagine!

Anyone willing to participate will receive a stipend for their work, PARTICIPATION IS LIMITED TO 24 STUDENTS so register early! Participants will commit to the program which will last for the school year and with meetings being held once weekly from 1-1/2-2 hours per week. All skills are encouraged to join and are welcome!
