Young Artists Summer Programs

The Choate Young Artists Programs in Performing and Visual Arts seek to develop an appreciation for live theater and visual arts in all of our young artists.

Each Young Artist is given an opportunity to find and develop their own passion and talent. All online sessions include an introduction to each art-form and the means to find inspiration, creativity, and collaboration. Students write their own scripts, construct their own dances, arrange their own music, and design their own original works of art! Themes are built into each session to give purpose and guidance, while also allowing young artists to understand and experience how each art form is reliant and supportive of all the other art forms.
