Summer Programs for Young Artists 2017
Summer Arts at Hubbard Hall
Hubbard Hall offers summer arts programs for young people, designed to give participants a fun and illuminating experience of working with teaching artists and other kids to make and perform great art! Our programs encourage each participant to be a part of the invention of the play or project and everyone has a lot of say in the building of his or her part. The end result is a celebration of the group process.
