smARTen Up

The Manatee Arts Education Council is proud to host the smARTen UP Summer Camp in effort to enhance and enrich the learning of our district’s rising 1st-rising 6th grade students. In addition to art and general music, students directly benefit from this program by receiving instruction from certified and highly-qualified arts educators in arts content areas not traditionally offered in the elementary arts curricula, including dance, theatre, band, orchestra, and media arts.

The scholarship application window has closed.
All available scholarships have been awarded.
