New! Summer Arts Camp! Ages 6-12

  • Immerse your child in the arts this summer on campus at The University of Akron. Your child will spend their time exploring movement and dance with our staff at The Dance Institute and the University of Akron’s School of Dance. Next, they will head to art class with the Mary Schiller Myers School of Art and the staff of the Art Institute. Ready for some drama? Your student will join our friends at Rubber City Theatre as they learn what it takes to be an actor.  Finally, the Music Institute and the University of Akron’s School of Music will help your budding young musician explore music. Explore and learn with The Arts Academy at The University of Akron. You can choose to attend just one session or come to both! Each week will feature a special campus experience like attending a ballet, getting a backstage tour of E.J. Thomas Hall, or visiting the Emily Davis Gallery!
