Visual Arts

Whether it is a pen, a paintbrush, a sewing machine or a camera, visual artists all have a certain medium that they like to work with… And, too, some like to use them all! We offer top-of-the-line equipment for our artists to use during camp, and masterful guidance campers take with them beyond their time at YPI.

Performing Arts

You don’t have to have experience on Broadway to get up on stage at YPI. Through improvisation workshops and guidance from professional actors, singers, musicians, and dancers, you will have the chance to express yourself through movement, instruments, and voice.

Creative Writing

Whether you consider yourself to be an experienced writer or more of a dabbler, our creative writing workshops are expansive enough for everyone. YPI writing workshops involve a combination of independent creative writing and sharing/collaborating with fellow teachers and classmates. Writers will write, revise, and edit their pieces throughout the week before sharing them with the rest of the camp at We Jazz on Friday afternoon. Our writing workshops are segmented into two different tracts: poetry and short story. While both workshops are similar, our Master Teachers understand and appreciate the critical differences between these two artforms.
