GRAM Studio


Jan 2 & 3, 2015. For ages 6 and Up.

Create winter fun at GRAM! Be inspired by the costume and set designs by local artist Chris Van Allsburg and Eugene Lee for the Grand Rapids Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker, campers will get a glimpse into the creative world where the visual and performing arts meet.

This two day winter break camp will feature visits to GRAM’s galleries for children to explore the sketches and drawings used to bring the set of The Nutcracker to life. Campers will work together to rewrite, recreate, and perform their own version of this historic tale.

A performance of the campers’ production will be held at GRAM’s Education Center on Saturday, January 3 at 12:30 pm.
