School Break Arts Camps

As students take a break from school this month and again in April, Carrollton Center for the Arts’ camps offer several opportunities for them to stay creative and have fun outside of the traditional classroom environment. While most of the center’s regular classes and programs will not meet during the weeks of February 17 and April 6, young people can learn about pastry, robotics and the technical side of the arts, working with clay and theatre production — from a murder mystery to the Land of Oz.
