Join SECCA and The Engaging Educator this summer for two fun-filled weeks of art-making and improv! July 10 – 21, 2017 / 9:00 am – 3:00 pm Monday through Friday.

Monday, June 12, 2017 | Overlook Gallery

Led by SECCA educators and The Engaging Educator, students will spend each day creating their own art using professional supplies, and spend time learning the principles of improv as we investigate SECCA's Art-o-mat exhibition. We'll explore sculpture, miniatures, painting, and even create our very own Zine issue, all while experimenting with characters, setting, story, and motivation in improv!

On the last day of camp, parents and family will be invited to a student-curated exhibition and improv performance. Last year's inaugural camp was a huge success, and we can't wait to explore and learn together in 2017!

For students entering 5th – 8th grade for the 2017 – 2018 School year

Cost: $400 / includes all materials and snacks

Dates: July 10 – 21, 2017 / 9:00 am – 3:00 pm Monday through Friday

The Engaging Educator:

The Engaging Educator specializes in customized, improv-based education. Using improv and performance pedagogy as professional development and continuing education for non-actors, we've worked with a wide range of clients – from Fortune 500 Companies to Startups to Schools and Universities. Every program we do is created with our student's goals and personality in mind. Since 2012, we've improv(ed) companies like Google, Viacom and Saks Fifth Avenue, worked with museums like the Guggenheim and SFMOMA, collaborated with organizations like ABC of NC Child Development Center and Startup Institute and reached countless individuals through our public classes. Based in NYC, LA and Winston-Salem, NC, we've led programs in over twenty-five states, bringing our brand of 'yes, and' nationwide.


Art-o-mat began in 1997 as a conceptual artwork by Winston-Salem artist Clark Whittington, repurposing cigarette vending machines to become dispensers for artist multiples, beginning with his own. Art-o-mat has since burgeoned into an international network of contributing artists, with collaborating host institutions that invite the public to experience art and collecting in a widely accessible and innovative way.

SECCA's Art-o-mat Exhibition:

Twenty years after its founding, SECCA is proud to present a full retrospective of Art-o-mat. This exhibition will include an armada of Art-o-mat machines and will expose their machinery, inviting all to see how an Art-o-mat is put together and customized. It will present numerous miniature art works that are dispensed from the machines and larger-scale commissioned works by the artists who produce editions for Art-o-mat, allowing them to flex their muscles and make new work.
