WPYAC update!

WPYAC stands for White Pines Young Artists Camp - and we're halfway through our summer! We thought it might be a good time to share some of the magic our campers have been making at The White Pines Place!

Week One was all about creating your own superhero. Here's a .gif of our beloved camp teaching assistant Julian playing a dastardly villain and getting his just desserts from a gang of superheroes!

Week Two was film school - and the campers made skits based on some of their favorite movies. Below are pix of a Harry Potter inspired scene, and an Indiana Jones inspired scene!

In week 2 they also made their very own music videos with Tina Budnik of KXB studios!

In Week Three we looked at making creative choices with social media. We made some frames . . . 

 . . . and some masks! 

Week Four was Hamilton week. It was the second most well attended week in the history of camp! We learned songs from the hit musical, studied the history and ideas it is based on, and made our own performance! Check out these videos from our week 4 share!

The next video is thanks to Devon's dad Joe Dougherty. Our memory chip ran out of space before the final song "Yorktown", but you can watch it here, along with Xander's poem! 

We have three more weeks of camp, and some spaces left for you! Sign up today! Click on the title of the camp week to enroll . . .
