Summer Arts at the Center

Beginning June 5th, students will come to the South Dallas Cultural Center for a 5 week program filled with fun, culture, and art education. Our theme for 2017 is “The Middle Passage”.  Using the cultural arts – vocal and digital music, architecture, dance, drumming, photography, creative dramatics, film, gardening, creative writing, storytelling, yoga, drawing and digital art – students will focus on the horrific journey that brought enslaved Africans to the Americas.

Students will also enjoy educational field trips to the Dallas Museum of Art, African American Museum, Blackland Ranch, Freedman Cemetery, the Old Red Court House, weekly swimming lessons, as well as, Moments with the Elders – an opportunity for students to talk with wise people in the Dallas community.
