Arts Roc is a small program in Pittsford with 501c3 nonprofit status. They offer private music lessons, both private and group language courses, KidzRoc (a rock band by kids, for kids), Lego day camps, and, as of 2012, a new Lego after-school program for elementary school students.
Founded by local Broadway producer Lor Bajorek, Arts Roc is also a conservatory of music, as well as language and art offering a variety of comprehensive educational programs. Private lessons include piano, voice, guitar, violin, drums, trumpet, and clarinet. Classes in Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish are taught in both individual and group settings. Charcoal drawing and painting classes are also offered.
In April 2012 Arts Roc received a donation of computers from the University of Rochester to enhance their Lego programs. These computer stations primarily are primarily devoted to stop-motion video production. The students build Lego scenes and then enact stories with their characters, chronicling each step with a new frame. Finally, they post their finished videos on Arts Roc's YouTube. In the future, Arts Roc hopes to submit exemplary student videos to stop-motion video competitions held by the First Lego League.
For children, Arts Roc has morning classes for ages 3 to 6 in Chinese, Spanish, music, and art. After-school programs for ages 6 to 18 include private music lessons and language study, as well as include monitored homework time. Arts Roc offers a Junior First Lego League for children 6 to 9 years of age. These sessions are Tuesday and Thursday 3:30PM-4:30PM and Saturday 10:00AM-11:00AM.
Registration is now open for the summer 2012 weekly Lego Education and Fashion Design camps. More information here.
