Art-in-Action 2015 – Magic: Creer para ver

This year’s Art-in-Action summer camp took place June 15 – July 10 for over 90 immigrant and migrant children living south of Miami. AIA enables these youth to build on their potential and become leaders in their community — as well as have an all-out fun time together!

A team of 9 ASTEP Volunteer Artists collaborated with 8 Local Artists to provide a diverse variety of classes in music, theatre, dance, visual arts, and our newest culinary arts, which not only allowed the students to be creative with food preparation but taught healthy eating habits. In addition, AIA organized a Family Day, inviting parents to participate in programming alongside their children, which equaled lots of laughter and big smiles. The 4-week arts camp culminated in a performance for the entire community with over 150 people attending! This event not only highlighted the student’s work but also helped strengthen the community through creative and celebratory events in a safe space.

Thank you to the incomparable team of Volunteer Artists who made this all possible: Devon Fitol, Raymundo Gutierrez, Cris Akeroyd, Halle Townes, Janilka Serrano, Tiffany Ramos, Aaron Anthon, Allyse Corbin, led by ASTEP’s Director of Programs and Evaluation, Lizzy Rainer
