Exciting new Art & Theatre Camp Summer Programs at Alderney Landing!

Alderney Landing is offering a new series of summer programming directed towards Young TEENS interested in pursuing creativity in Filmmaking, Writing and Large Scale Sculpture for public display.
“I saw an ongoing need in our continued Summer Arts Series for youth to grow it to include teens who want to challenge their creativity and build skills while working closely with professional artists and peers. These teens will come away with skills that will enable them to approach their ongoing studies creatively and build confidence in their future avenues of creative expression.” – Lee Cripps, Fine Arts Programming Director, Alderney Landing, 902-461-4698 x 15
In our Filmmaking Camp, students will work together in production teams to write, shoot, direct and act in a Horror Movie Short Film. This short film will be screened publicly during our Bluenose Ghosts Festival in October and featured in our HORROR MOVIE TRAILER CHALLENGE!
In our Haunted Sculpture 2 week Camp – back by popular demand, in this 2 week intensive students will work closely with local Artist and  Sculptor Julie Adamson Miller to create large scale ghostly sculptural works while exploring the local lore of ghostly activity and hauntings. These sculptures are designed and built by them which will be prominently displayed throughout the grounds during our Bluenose Ghosts Festival in October this year.
Our Scriptwriting Camp will be an exploration of writing and directing for stage and screen with the final script to be performed by our youth in our following Theatre Camp!
This new series will run throughout July in parallel with our continued and popular Art & Theatre Camps for kids. Listed below are the Facebook event pages with details and ongoing updated info for each Camp. It’s going to be a wonderfully exciting and busy Summer at Alderney Landing!
