Parents of kids and young teens are now able to register them for Miami-Dade County’s annual Summer Arts Conservatory in Liberty City.
At the conservatory, now in its 39th year, youngsters between 5 and 16 can take part in cultural experiences through dance, drama, media, fashion arts, visual arts, instrumental music and vocal music.
The arts conservatory is a 10-week program that takes place from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., June 9 to Aug. 15 at the African Heritage Cultural Arts Center, 6161 NW 22nd Ave.
Tuition is $500 for the entire 10 weeks. Parents or guardians must make a $162 deposit to reserve a space.
Registration will end June 27.
If registration is paid in full before June 9, there is a $50 reduction, according to Ashlee Thomas, the center’s marketing and community outreach coordinator.
In the arts conservatory, students will take five to six classes per day that vary depending on what subject they want to focus.
Students older than 10 are taken on field trips also based on their choice of artistic expression.
Art students go to see the murals in Wynwood, for example, Thomas said. The trip for theater students will be determined later, but program coordinators are considering the Joseph Caleb Center’s summer series.
As the program ends in August the students will put on a summer festival to showcase for family what they learned throughout the 10 weeks.
There will be a fashion show Aug. 1, an arts festival Aug. 9 and a recital Aug.15.
