THE POWER OF CREATIVITY
Engaging diverse ages, cultures and economic backgrounds through educational, inter-cultural outreach programs.
Before a child talks, they sing. Before they write, they draw. As soon as they stand, they dance. Art is fundamental to human expression.” – Phylicia Rashad
The Marietta Center for the Arts (MCA) offers year round art-focused education classes for kids and adults of all ages. These classes give students the tools to learn and expand their knowledge of the arts and allows them the freedom to expresses themselves in a fun, emotionally and physically safe environment. Students will focus not only on material developed for the stage, but also from the worlds of music, dance, material art, literature, and history.
Our goal is not only to nurture an appreciation for live theatre, but also to help students develop on a personal level by focusing on communication, teamwork, self-discipline, positive self-image and confidence, responsibility and respect, awareness of the senses, use of imagination and creativity, as well as the exploration and control of emotions. We emphasize the process of creating art and encourage students to share what they have learned in all aspects of their lives.
