Arts and Humanities
Conservatory workshops invite learners to get in touch with their creative side.
Stephanie Goforth, the Arts and Humanities Conservatory Manager, said participating in workshops make a great impact on learners and often leads to "rewarding discoveries" and an opportunity to deal with contemporary issues.
CCA partners with organizations across the state allowing students to learn first hand from local artists and professionals from their hometowns. Previous partners include Capital Area School for the Arts, Scranton Cultural Center, Pittsburgh Museum of Art and the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge in Philadelphia, to name a few.
Students can participate in hands-on workshops exploring:
- Youth and government
- Glass blowing
- Sound recording
- Creative writing
- Fine art and drawing
These unique programs provide group experiences around the state and work with individual juniors and seniors to provide personalized internships. Students participating in conservatory events benefit from unique experiences, including: job shadowing, working with peers, deepening levels of understanding and skills, creating and broadening horizons, participating in independent study programs and viewing the world through a creative lens.
