SummerWorks is a six-week-long arts program consisting of four sessions: SongWorks (2 weeks), two segments of ArtWorks (one week each), and TheatreWorks (2 weeks). SummerWorks 2020 has gone virtual! Programs will meet on Zoom once a day from 11 – 12:30pm. All programs include a no-contact supply delivery. All sessions culminate in a showcase celebration of participants and their art. Sign up for one or multiple programs!

Please submit your application as soon as possible. AIR staff will be reviewing applications on a rolling-basis until the start of programs.



June 29 – July 9, 2020 (8 days)

Week 1: Monday to Thursday 

Week 2: Monday to Thursday 

SongWorks is one of our most popular programs! This 8 day program is jam (pun intended) packed with visits from guest musicians, workshops in lyric writing and song form, writing original songs, singing choral pieces, and preparing for our showcase concert. (No previous vocal or instrumental experience is needed to be part of this program)

ArtWorks I

July 13 – July 17, 2020 (5 days)

Monday through Friday

It’s OC Week! Do you want to create an original character or improve an existing OC? Work with a visual artist and a young adult fiction author to hone your design, character development, and story building skills!

ArtWorks II

July 20 – July 24, 2020 (5 days)

Monday through Friday 

This five-day program will explore various media and approaches to artmaking. 


July 27 – August 6, 2020 (8 days)

Week 1: Monday through Thursday

Week 2: Monday through Thursday

At AIR, we don’t start our theatre and dance program with a script….we create one along the way! Join us this summer to experience devised theatre, a process of collaboratively creating and performing an original production with the guidance of a professional theatre director & choreographer.
