DRAMATIC KID? THERE’S A CAMP FOR THAT!

Summer-Camps-digital-sign.jpg

There’s a summer option for kids who want something more creative than the usual camp offerings.

The Town of Cochrane has art and drama camps, led by notable local artists.

Artist in residence, Daunia Del Ben, is directing three specialty camp sessions in July: shadow puppetry, Commedia dell’Arte and clowning. Del Ben has a Master of Fine Arts degree and was the artistic director for Teatro dell’Eco’s 2017 theatre season.

Jola Muran, the Town of Cochrane’s art director, leads the art portion of camps and helps young artists explore various techniques and material.
