S.C. – School of the Arts students
will host their Second Annual Art Camp at the Charleston County SOA on April 1-3
from 9 a.m. to noon.
The camp is for first through fifth grade students from
Chicora, Mary Ford, Hursey, North Charleston, Matilda Dunston and North
Charleston Creative Arts elementary schools.
The camp is being taught by
SOA students in the disciplines of
creative writing, dance, vocal, theatre, visual arts and percussion. The goal
of the camp is to promote the learning and love of the arts, while encouraging
SOA students to participate in service and develop a strong relationship with
the local community.
"Students and staff members at
SOA are looking forward to building relationships in our community while
providing fun, enriching art experiences for local elementary students in a day
camp setting. SOA's students take the lead role in this opportunity and have
the privilege of sharing their artistic gifts with those who may one day follow
in their footsteps," said SOA Principal Dr. Shannon Cook.
The SOA students are members of
the school's Jefferson Awards Students in Action Club and the camp is part of
the club's Tri-County Youth Service Day project.
"The camp allows a way for our students to showcase
their unique talents and promote volunteerism in our school community. SOA
students become the teacher and find a way to connect with their younger
counterparts in the community," said The club's faculty advisor,
