Pull out your paintbrushes and throw on your stage make-up: Fine Arts Summer Camps are back!
Last year’s art and drama camp instructors have signed on for another exciting year of creativity and collaboration with children aged 7-16.
Drama camp instructors, and current University of Lethbridge drama/education students, Erinn Watson and Elyse Whittaker are excited to spend the summer creating new and exciting plays.
“I’m so excited for this summer,” says Watson, returning for her third year with the camps. “Every week I look forward to seeing the students’ hard work presented on a working university stage, complete with costumes, lights and sound.”
When Karissa Patton crosses the stage at convocation this spring, she will do so knowing faculty and staff at the University of Lethbridge have supported her.
Originally from Calgary, Patton came to the U of L in 2009 with the intention of majoring in history and later entering the education program. After taking three applied studies conducting archival research, Patton changed paths.
“I loved the hands-on research and I realized history was my passion,” recalls Patton. “I wanted to continue doing research.”
