Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts (MCA) is thrilled to be partnering with Elder Network to offer an art workshop suitable for all family members, care givers, and care receivers to spend an hour together in their home creatively. This Intentional Doodling class will be interactive and run live through ZOOM. During this session students will explore using shapes, lines, and patterns to create artwork and even relax the mind.
Our virtual theatre classes ans performances have been keeping kids active, connected and creative during these challenging times. These classes provide a positive way to help young people learn to express themselves and explore the world around them while also building important life skills such as public speaking. Check out our exciting virtual theatre opportunities during July 2020.
Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts has always incorporated theory classes within it’s summer dance intensive trainings to help offer a well-rounded dance experience, however in the past it has always been an exclusive opportunity only for intensive participants. Thanks to the virtual format this year we are so excited that we are able to open these workshops to a wider community of performing artists and or those interested in careers related to dance who might want to learn from and interact with an amazing roster of national specialists. July 6-24, 2020 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
