Magik Performing Arts Academy
The Magik Theatre offers fun, creative, and challenging arts education programming for San Antonio’s youth, including weekend and after-school classes, holiday and summer camps, and workshops for kids and adults, all taught by professional, experienced Teaching Artists.
Our philosophy is to focus on teaching young people PROCESS over PRODUCT. We believe if we teach children the process of creating art, the result will be higher quality productions. Our goal is to impart how art and theatre teach young people the importance of thinking outside of the box. The Magik Theatre’s Performing Arts Academy is a place where children can choose their own paths of study – a child can learn to be an actor, singer, dancer, and filmmaker, as well as a writer, dreamer, and all-around artist. Students learn to use creativity to approach school work, problem solving, self-esteem, and team building.
Based on Paul Baker’s theory of multiple intelligences – the idea that each child learns differently – the Academy offers fun, educational, and inspiring classes during the fall, winter, and spring semesters. A chance for young people to spend after-school hours in a creative clubhouse, the Academy is a place where children can use the artist inside them in everything they do.
