A free camp slated for next week aims to teach young participants of all abilities about theater performance and filmmaking.

Onscreen & Off! will be open to sixth, seventh and eighth graders.


“This Kennedy Center Access/VSA program is specially designed for students of all abilities, with specific instruction developed for disabled students,” according to an informational flyer about the program. “Throughout the week, we will investigate storytelling on-screen and off as we learn about theater performance and filmmaking to create a collaborative short film.”

The instructor, Christie Scanlin Dobson, has been a teaching artist at the Lawrence Arts Center since 2004. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in theater and film from KU, a master’s in drama therapy from Kansas State University, and she has just completed her doctorate in special education with a focus on arts and inclusion at KU, according to the flyer.

The program will meet from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, July 24 through 28. Call the Lawrence Arts Center front desk at 785-843-2787 or email to register.
