Arts for Kids

Arts for Kids Program

The Webb Center’s “Arts for Kids” program focuses on the interaction between students and artists while serving the 2,100 students attending the eleven schools in this region of Arizona.  The program is intended to complement and enhance the local schools’ arts and cultural curriculum and is designed to inspire creativity, foster communication and tolerance, promote cultural exchange, create a positive image of self and community and enrich the overall educational experience.

Utilizing a series of partnerships with community organizations and educators the “Arts for Kids” program provides life-enhancing experiences through the arts for students in the Wickenburg area.  Those experiences include free live performances, classroom residencies with artists, and Camp Imagination, a summer arts camp.

Professional musicians, dancers and actors introduce students to the creativity, beauty and diversity of the arts through special student performances, in-classroom workshops, and lecture/demonstrations.

Camp Imagination

In June, the Webb Center welcomed approximately 100 first through twelfth grade students to participate in two sessions of the eleventh annual Camp Imagination. The two-week summer arts camp is designed to stretch the imagination of children by introducing them to a variety of arts genres through an intensive hands-on program of activities that integrates technical, visual and performing arts mediums.
