Kaleidoscope Arts in Education Programs are the primary mission and initiative of the not-for-profit Muskoka Lakes Music Festival, based in Port Carling, Ontario. For over a decade, the MLMF has provided innovative and integrated Kaleidoscope programming in the form of children's arts festivals, summer arts camps, artists in the schools, artists in the community, and workshops for artists and teachers. Click on the links to the right to learn more about each of these aspects of our programming. By connecting children, teachers, and others in the community with professional artists, Kaleidoscope strives to enrich childrens' learning experiences and teachers' expertise in the arts. Our artistic workshops awaken creativity, celebrate cultural diversity, and deepen awareness and understanding of complex issues. Our growing roster of artists includes painters, singers, printmakers, actors, sculptors, dancers, photographers, videographers, potters, jugglers, and many more! Kaleidoscope began offering summer camp programs in 2006. Our professional artist instructors offer art, music and drama activities, and special guest artists visit to teach their own specialty. The summer camp is held at the Port Carling Memorial Community Centre in July and August, and is open to children aged 4 - 10 (unless otherwise indicated).
