Get ready for a summer packed with creativity and excitement! Our unique arts program brings together African Drumming, Book Making, Creative Writing, and Acting Improv led by experienced teachers with over 20 years in the field. But it's not just about honing artistic skills—we spice things up with outdoor games and team-building activities to keep the fun rolling!


Picture your child jamming to infectious beats, crafting imaginative stories, and diving into spontaneous acting scenes—all while team building making new friends. This isn't your typical summer program—it's a one-of-a-kind opportunity for kids to explore their passions in a laid-back, supportive environment.


Give your child a summer they'll never forget, filled with laughter, learning, and plenty of memorable moments. Join us for a summer of creative exploration and fun!


African Drumming is taught by ACAS owner Ayanna Gallant who has a degree in Music Education and Curriclum and Instruction through Integrated Arts. She performs regularly around the DMV and continues to hone her skills as an apprentice and student of the Tam Tam Mandingue. She is also a progessional voice actor (co-teaching improv acting) with brands such as McDonalds, GoPro, Xerox, Red Bull, and Hyundai.


Creative Writing and Improv Acting will be taught by Matthew Gallant, a poet, editor, actor, and voracious reader. Over the last twenty years, Matthew has lead poetry workshops for K-12 students, teachers, festivals, and events. He as competed in slam poetry across the country and has published poets around the world through his micro-press, Sargent Press. He credits improv acting for creating a fun and trusting environment in the classroom as an English teacher, being more dynamic in stage acting, and making him a more compelling communicator.
