Our TWO-WEEK ONLINE SUMMER INTENSIVES will feature two daily blocks: a Main Block and a Creative Lab Block. Students can choose to schedule the Creative Lab Block before or after the Main Block, designed to give start and end time flexibility to families in different time zones. Please note that all times are schedule EST (Eastern Standard Time) which is East Coast time. For example, classes that start at 11am EST in New York City will start at 8am PST in Los Angeles.
Students will have the option to choose from one of two Creative Blocks either scheduled before or after the Main Block. This will allow students in different time zones to customize the schedule to best suit their needs. Creative blocks will feature collaborative work in smaller groups, one-on-one advisements with instructors, and individual writing and production time.
While the continued ban on large gatherings is expected to make overnight summer camps less feasible and less safe in 2021, SOCAPA does expect most states to allow smaller gatherings of less than ten or twenty people who come from the same town, neighborhood, or "trusted circle". With that in mind, we think it could make a lot of sense for some students to sign up with a sibling, a friend, or even an acquaintance from their school who may share their interest. In this scenario, the students could attend classes either together or separately online but could then work together in-person on some of the collaborative projects like film shoots and song recordings.
SOCAPA is excited to announce the following online offerings in 2021. This is just a start — we are hard at work developing courses for all of our disciplines so please check back for new sessions and programs.
