2021 SUMMER ARTS LINK UPDATE
Because of continuing safety restrictions and facility availability, we were not able to bring back the Summer Arts Link for 2021. We have missed bringing this joyful and artful education opportunity to our students and our community. During the past year, we have learned to be flexible in how we bring art opportunities to students in a time it was desperately needed.
SO WE HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT!
We are pleased to announce that the Westminster Public Schools Creative Arts Pipeline has teamed up with Celebrate the Beat (CTB), a renowned metro-area based arts education organization, to create an outstanding virtual summer arts camp experience for our students and we wanted to share it with our past Summer Arts Link families, as well! Celebrate the beat has long provided high-quality in-school, after-school and virtual dance programs for all children that improve their physical health and well-being, inspire them to believe in themselves, and establishes a standard of excellence that impacts all aspects of their lives.
As part of our partnership with CTB, all K-5 students who wish to sign up for Celebrate the Beat’s virtual summer classes can do so…for free! Over 100 classes spanning five-to-ten weeks and ranging from Mindful Moments to Music, Dance, and a whole lot more, are available at no cost to WPS students or families. Check out the attached flyers for information and to register for specific classes.
Additionally, the WPS Virtual Arts Camp provides simple and fun creative activities that can be enjoyed by all students all summer long!
You can access the virtual camp site and all of our cool activities at the following link:
Be sure to check back frequently – new activities will be added periodically throughout the summer!
Check out our Facebook page at WPS Creative Arts Pipeline Facebook for any updates as well and to get updates on upcoming events from the Pipeline.
Thank you for participating in our camps in the past. We enjoyed having your students and we look forward to “seeing” you all again in the summer of 2022. In the meantime, keep making beautiful art in any fashion that moves you!
Creative Arts Pipeline
Westminster Public Schools has established a Creative Arts Pipeline to attract students to the arts by identifying, growing and presenting their artistic talents in a high-quality learning environment, kindergarten through graduation. We are deliberate, inclusive and broad-based in the visual and performing arts program throughout the district enabling students to find their passions and voices in the arts as they grow through their formative years.
The motto for WPS is Where Education is Personal. For students in the arts, CAP brings this motto to life. It means we provide broad-based, artistic programming for all students and specialized opportunities when students discover interests and aptitudes for deepening their artistic education. Additionally, we will purposefully connect content curricula with the arts to reinforce learning and build transferrable skills for living beyond the school setting.
