LACONIA — The Frates Creative Arts Center is again offering a week-long Summer Arts Program running from August 12 to 16. The program will be filled with unique workshops in magic, creative classes in drawing and painting, and The Children’s Theater Workshop.
The Magic Workshop is an experience that offers young magicians an opportunity to learn and practice close up and stage effects for two performances at the end of the week. One performance will take place at the Laconia Downtown Market Place and a second at the Friday performance of the Children’s Theater Workshop on Canal Street.
The classes in drawing and painting are available to children ages 5 to 14. Age appropriate levels are presented in the early afternoon all week with a variety of media being explored. Emphasis is on enjoyment and expression through experimentation with new techniques. A final exhibition will be held at the end of the week as part of the Children’s Theater Production on Friday at 6:30 p.m.
The Children’s Theater Workshop is a Lakes Region tradition that has inspired children and teens to find their potential as actors. It has always been presented as a non competitive family based workshop where the children have fun putting the show together in one week. Children ranging in age from 4 to 14 will learn how to work together, support each other, and perform a short show to family and friends. This one-week creative arts experience has been part of the lives of Lakes Region children for decades.
