2018 - 3rd Annual Cape Ann Arts Alive - Music and More Day Camp - - Monday


2018 - Day 1

The day began with each camper decorating a pennant as well as papier mache fish to be used in the finale at the Shalin Liu Performance Center. 

Daisy Nell lead campers in learning “Heartbeat from the Sea" written by Daisy for the school children of Gloucester where she has taught the children her song.

Campers learned a dance, more songs before they took off for City Hall.

At City Hall they meet Her Honor, Sefatia Romeo-Theken and the visiting Mayor of Gloucester, England! An animated conversation ensued.

Maggie Rosa lead them up the steep steps to the bell tower for a panoramic view of the city.

Art historian Susan Erony gave them the background of the famous WPA murals followed by a lively discussion with the campers about the Great Desprssion and all works of art in City Hall created under Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal and the Works Progress  Administration.

The campers returned to St. John’s for more music:  singing, dancing and chiming
The public is invited to a review of the camp’s activities at Rockport's Shalin Liu Performance Center Friday, August 24 at 11:15. Free and open to the public. What a fabulous opportunity for the campers and their families!
