HARVEY | Restoration Ministries’ Gallery of the Arts Summer Session classes begin Monday with a weeklong musical theater class.
For children who love to sing, dance and perform for others, Restoration Ministries is bringing The StagePlay Musical Theater Program to its Gallery of the Arts. Stageplay is a well-known performing arts program held at park districts throughout the southwest suburbs.
All participants will learn songs and choreography at an age-appropriate level of difficulty. StagePlay emphasizes the journey toward producing a show from start to finish, creating a fun and non-competitive environment for kids to stretch their dramatic wings. This summer, students will learn about the history of jazz and the influence it still has on American music.
The StagePlay program also incorporates valuable life lessons such as teamwork, commitment, conquering fear, being prepared, confidence and theater etiquette. On the last day of camp, the talented young stars will perform for friends and family, showing off all that they have learned in less than one week. Every participant will receive a souvenir camp T-shirt. The class begins Monday and ends Thursday. Children ages 5 to 15 are welcome. The cost is $15.
On June 17, the Gallery of the Arts will begin its six-week Summer Session. Classes in beginning and advanced pottery, photography, jewelry, crochet, multimedia recycle art, dance and piano are being offered.
A student art show will take place Aug. 1.
Third-graders to 12th-graders are welcome. There is a $5 fee per course. To register, call (708) 333-3370.
The Gallery of the Arts is located at 15331 Broadway in Harvey.
