INSPIRING A NEW GENERATION OF ARTISTS

Andrea Donais

Meet the Founder & Creator, Andrea Donais

I have had the honour and privilege of working with children, youth, and young artists of all ages throughout my career as an educator, singer, and choral conductor. Helping my students ignite the artist within has been my greatest joy and life’s passion. When my students ignite the artist within – they discover a creative voice, a confidence and a resilience – they never knew they had.

I love summer camp. Some of my best childhood memories are memories of music camp. I would spend every summer immersed in music and enjoying the company of my friends. Summer camp offers a relaxed and comfortable environment, free of external pressures, to explore new areas of artistic expression and to truly be creative. 

Donais Studios Mini Maestros summer camp programs offer small camp sizes for a more personalized camp experience. Our fun and engaging camp programs will keep your child learning and growing this summer in a safe, encouraging, and nurturing environment.     

The Mini Maestros summer camp programs intentionally create positive collaborative arts experiences that are transformational and build key life skills – creativity, confidence, and self-expression. Skills that will transport into all aspects of life. There is something very special, powerful, and even magical about the arts! Join us this summer for a personalized camp experience like no other.
