As part of our mission to promote lifelong community engagement in the arts, Catamount Arts offers a wide range of classes and workshops for people of all ages. In addition to music classes for small children, photography for grade-schoolers, and dance lessons for adults, learning opportunities at Catamount range from lantern-making, Claymation, and bookbinding to cartooning, French, and filmmaking.
With funding from the Canaday Family Charitable Trust, Catamount’s Arts Education Coordinator Anne Campbell has developed comprehensive programming for school-aged children and teenagers, ensuring that area youth (including homeschoolers) have year-round access to classes, workshops, and summer camps both in and out of school. Funding from The Gladys Brooks Foundation and individual donors ensure that scholarships are available for children who need them.
Partnerships with Northeast Kingdom Community Action and HeadStart help us engage our youngest community members with movement, storytelling, and visual arts play, encouraging them to express themselves and interact with others. Programming for adults and families includes writing workshops, figure drawing, quilting, and even pet portraiture as part of Catamount’s ongoing commitment to fostering lifelong community engagement in the arts.
