  • CAA Summer Workshops are a Blast!

    Students that have attended our first few workshops this summer have really had a fantastic time engaging in the arts!  Students have danced, acted, written scripts, drawn, painted, and some are currently creating a film!

    Congrats to workshop student Jenna VanHoosier for having her script from the “Screenplays for Students” The Artist chose to be be storyboarded in “Sketching for the Screen” and then turned into a short film in “Lights, Camera, Action!”

    Check out a few highlights of the Workshops below:


    Students designed creative costumes based on the theme “Under the Sea” on day 2 of the “On Stage!” workshop held at the Boys and Girls Club of Moline Teen Center.


    Students learn a dance routine with local hip-hop duo Re-fl3x during the “On Stage!” Workshop.


    CAA instructor Connie Bracey works on choreography with students at the Boys and Girls Club of Moline Teen Center for an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet.




    Students do a read-through of the Romeo and Juliet play they performed at the end of the “On Stage” Workshop.


    Samantha, a student at the “DoodleTime!” Workshop, shows off her drawings of people.


    Students attending the “DoodleTime!” Workshop at the Friendly House in Davenport had a great time!
