The Mosesian Arts Education and Watertown Children's Theatre programs provide a variety of affordable, educational programs for children, teens, and adults. Our programming serves beginning as well as advanced students in fine and performing arts. We offer a process-based approach to exploring the arts that guides students towards developing both art skills and techniques as well as life skills such as collaboration, creativity and empathy.
We are committed to being an inclusive, welcoming space for peoples of all ability, ethnicity, economic status, sexual orientation and gender identity. Some features of our facility and program include need based scholarships and accessible classroom/performance spaces.
Guide to Summer Programs
WHAT GRADE RANGE IS MY CHILD?
All summer programs are for children entering the listed grades in school year '19-'20.
WHAT IS A WILDCARD ACTIVITY?
The Wildcard Activity is a chance for students to self-select an art- or performance-based elective that they do not generally get to experience during their day! Students will choose their Wildcard Activity at the beginning of the week and get the chance to learn a fun new skill in mixed-age groups of students.
GUIDE TO SUMMER K-2 PROGRAMS
ArtVenturers: Each week, ArtVenturers explore a theme through theatre, visual arts, and music! In this integrated arts program, participants rotate daily through these three creative components, as they collaborate on a showcase that combines all of their artistic experiences.
Tiny Triple Threats: Sing! Dance! Design! In Tiny Triple Threats, our youngest participants get a chance to experience the many aspects of theatrical production. During their day, participants rotate through singing and dancing, artwork and design, and acting programs, as they work together to combine these into a one-of-a-kind mini-performance.
Story Explorers: In Story Explorers, participants rotate through three programs as they explore new media through the lens of their favorite stories. They engage their imaginations and hands to make several pieces of literature-related art and have the opportunity to dramatize a familiar story through acting, song and dance to bringing their artwork to life!
School-year programs: Full refunds will be made if a class is cancelled due to insufficient enrollment. Student cancellations must be received at least 5 business days prior to production/class/workshop start date and a $25 cancellation fee will be deducted from the refund. After that time tuition will be refunded, minus the $25 fee, ONLY if your/your child’s space is filled by another participant. For production programs, no one will be added from the waitlist once the audition process is complete, in order to provide a fair audition opportunity for all participants. Students who are eligible for a refund may choose, in lieu of a refund, to have their tuition transferred to another class within the same term (with the exception of private lessons). Short-term workshops and membership fees are not refundable.
