As we navigate the pandemic that has kept us apart, we'd like to share some videos that will keep our CAMPers active and productive.
Art is a priority at C.A.M.P. University and we engage it as often as possible. Nancy Bailey, author and blogger writes, “If inclusion is the goal for students with disabilities, as has been described in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, then art classes should be a high priority. The arts can level the playing field, because [students] with difficulties in academic subjects might excel at drawing, painting, acting or dancing and singing.”
We agree that students with difficulties can soar in the arts, and in our history at C.A.M.P. University, a visitor will quickly learn that theater productions, nights at the McAllen Performing Arts Center, and many hands-on projects during our class hours are a core part of how we continue to facilitate learning and opportunities to grow. Mr. Izzy, one of our instructors, leads the students online in drawing while we follow Hidalgo County's July 2020 mandante to shelter in place. Classes (and drawing on!) resume in person August 5th.
