Text Size

The first session of Newtown Continuing Education’s SMART (Summer Music and Art) Camp wrapped up on Friday, July 19.

Throughout the afternoon, children and their families collected crafts the campers had made during the two weeks, including artwork, tie-dyed bandanas, and sculptures.

Family members were also invited to attend the performance of the original play The Shimmerwater Swap that was created by campers in the Theater & Performance Workshop and Production & Performance Workshop. Instructors for the workshops were Kyle Watkins and Stephanie Pilavin.

Session II of SMART Camp is scheduled to take place July 22 to August 2.

On the final day of SMART Camp’s first session on July 19, campers in The Shimmerwater Swap filled the stage as family members looked on from the audience. —Bee Photos, Silber
