Summer Camp Experiences

This summer we provide both visual arts and theatre camps for youth ages 4-18 to engage & empower them in the creative process. Young people will explore their natural creative gifts and learn new techniques to build confidence & skills. We have camps in person and on-line! All supplies are provided, some scholarships are provided to support maximum engagement.

Spotlight Series

During the days of COVID-19, our theater has spent far too many evenings empty. We’ve decided to feature intimate performances in this amazing space, featuring dancers, musicians, storytellers, and other local artists. Help support us while we navigate these challenging times for the arts.


Artwork available

We are offering a range of artwork our treasured local Gorge artists. We will wrap them and have them ready for pick up at your request. Any questions please contact us!
