The School Of YES! combines the techniques of all classes into one fluid camp. Here a student makes her own drum for music class using styles learned in Mexican Arts & Crafts.

The School of YES is different than other camps because they have so many different teachers here and they all teach us very different things about the arts, but even things about leadership and life advice about getting older
