Though often dismissed as junk, Jackson Pollock’s paintings are actually representations of the spontaneous combustion that occurs when people suppress their creativity. Create a necessary outlet with today’s Groupon: for $69, you get one week of summer camp at Almost Famous Creative Arts Camp in Winter Springs (a $140 value). Camps run Monday–Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. through August 12 at Life Community Church. Registrations must be made a week before camp dates begin.
Almost Famous Creative Arts Camp fills the curriculum of future art-history courses with skill-enhancing programs. Visionary youth, age 5–15, can choose between one week of the camp’s week-long runs (June 27, July 5, July 11, July 18, July 25, August 1, or August 8) and spend the day beefing up right-brain strength and award-acceptance speeches. Take the pain out of shower ballads by enrolling students in the vocal music program, or help restock Broadway by ushering dramatic offspring to the theater or dance programs. Brush brandishers will thrive in the visual-arts camp, and procrastinating paper writers can pen a lifetime’s worth of excuses in the creative-writing program.
Almost Famous Creative Arts Camp is housed on the campus of Life Community Church, which can be seen from space when camp is in session, due to the intense concentration of creative energies. Though not valid with this Groupon, parents can sign their children up for further camp weeks. The summer culminates in a skill-showcasing performance where young performers can display their song and dance savvy for a sold-out audience of camera-clasping parents. Care is available before and after camp hours for parents attending to commutes and interviewing agents.
