About this program
The Jarrett Markel Creativity Boot Camp was created in loving memory of Jarret Markel. Jarrett’s love for motocross was surpassed only by his love for his family. He was a lifelong resident of Newburgh, New York. His persistence, determination, kind spirit and soul will be forever missed.
The Jarrett Markel Creativity Boot Camp brings professional teaching artists from Orange County to provide hands-on arts opportunities for students in our community. Classes are free and are geared towards specific ages groups; 5-8, 8-12, and 12-16. After live presentations, select classes are uploaded to OCAC’s YouTube Channel, including separate recordings in Spanish. Past activities have ranged from paper arts, book arts, creating with nature, comic book creation, story telling, drawing, creative writing, building from recycled materials and painting. So far, this program has reached over 370 youth. During the live class, students have opportunities to ask questions, show their art work and engage with the art teacher while developing their creative skills.
This program is made possible by the Jarrett Markel Fund and Community Playthings.
Registration required to participate. Locations include Middletown Senior Center, Warwick Library, and Newburgh Public Library.
