Online Summer Arts, STEAM, & Music Classes @ Virtual Classes
Jun 29 – Aug 28 all-day
Online Summer Arts, STEAM, & Music Classes @ Virtual Classes | | |

The Rye Arts Center has moved its award-winning classes online! Classes include painting, drawing, coding, animation, sewing, model-making, ceramics, engineering, game design, Manga, music, theater, and more.

Classes run Monday – Friday. Students can repeat classes week after week to build upon the skills they learn. Class sizes are small allowing instructors to adapt to the needs of each individual student.

The week-by-week model is perfect for families who need a little flexibility as they adapt to changing summer plans. The daily schedule of classes is built so that students can fill their days with creative activities or enjoy a single class each day.

While The RAC’s classes are open to EVERYONE, you can become a member to receive a 10% discount for most classes.

College Essay Bootcamp ONLINE @ ONLINE
Jul 14 @ 4:00 PM – Aug 4 @ 6:00 PM
College Essay Bootcamp ONLINE @ ONLINE | | |

As 4.0 GPAs have grown more common, the personal statement has become an important way to distinguish oneself in the college application process. That’s never been more important than for the Class of 2021, many of whom will apply to college without having taken an SAT or ACT. While the stakes of college essays are particularly high this fall, crafting an authentic personal statement can also catalyze an invaluable journey of self-discovery and identity-making for teens on the verge of adulthood.

However, since the personal statement differs profoundly from essays that students write in high school classes, many teens struggle through the process. In this 4 session course, college counselor, published author, and master teacher Dr. Dominique Padurano (Dr. P.) guides students through brainstorming, drafting, and polishing their personal statements in time for the Early Application Deadline of November 1.

Please note: Dr. P. will conduct the entire first class session with all the students present at the same time. Subsequent class sessions will be divided up into 10-15 minute increments, depending on the number of students in the course. Each student will sign up for one increment during which Dr. P. will conference privately with him/her about his/her essay. It will be students’ responsibility to share their drafts with Dr. P. via Google Docs prior to each class session, as well as to log onto the Zoom classroom several minutes before their appointment.
