School of Magic Arts is a virtual school, and has been for years. In fact, not to brag, but we are the number one virtual magic school in the country. We find that teaching magic via computer is an extremely effective way for students to learn. Read more about virtual magic instruction here.
What is it?
School of Magic Arts announces our most fun summer yet: it’s time for Build Your Own Magic Summer 2023. Students ages 11-15 will meet weekly in two hour classes to construct magic props and learn magic effects. From hand props to large stage effects, SOMA magicians will learn the inner workings of stage magic and unlock the best summer ever. Each session is limited to 5 students for maximum engagement.
Who are we?
School of Magic Arts instructors are experts in their fields. We have cardsharps, mentalists, coin wizards, theater makers, and more. Our Head Magicians (and SOMA Founders), Annie Montone and Brian Kehoe, are professional magicians who have developed a program that has helped hundreds of students achieve their dreams of performing stage magic.
How does it work?
Everything they need for this STEAM powered 12 weeks will be shipped to your door prior to the first day of class. We will send you the Zoom link to join on the morning of class.
Each two hour class will begin with students checking in and stretching before setting up their materials. During the first half they will learn a quick magic trick, some vocabulary words, and the history of the magic we will be building. After a short break they will watch the instructor perform the magic they will be building. Then they will build the prop of the day, decorate it with some finishing touches, and learn how to perform with it.
The building materials consist of cardboard, paper, cardstock, thin woods and plastics. We do our best to keep things tidy on your end so we never use white glue or paint.
Build Your Own Magic is a perfect introduction to stage magic and School of Magic Arts, as well as a blast for current and returning students. Also a great supplement to in-person summer camps, and a way to keep minds engaged and learning over summer break!
