Taste of Art teachers are paid in the same way as teachers who have proposed a class. The CAC, with the input of the teacher, will determine dates, times, the cost of supplies and tuition per student.

 

 

 

Spring Theater Camp

During spring break the CAC offers a 1 week (M-F) Spring Theater Camp from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Students grades 3-8 will learn many aspects of theatre such as basic acting skills, creating set designs, applying stage makeup, and performing in an actual play at the end of the week.

 

Spring Theater Camp teachers are paid $10.00/hour.  Since we may have multiple teachers teaching different classes, the number of hours teachers get paid will depend upon the schedule. Each teacher will also be paid for thirty minutes before and after their designated teaching times for set-up and clean-up. Spring Theater camp assistants are paid $25.00/day. Volunteer assistant positions are also available.

 

Spring Theater Camp requires a big commitment. Teachers and assistants may be asked to fill out additional forms and attend meetings and training sessions prior to camp.
