artCAMP is COMING!
artCentral’s fifteenth annual artCamp is coming soon for young artists ready to make art and happy memories, too!
Hyde House and the Pottery House will be filled with artful activities as campers and their instructors explore, learn, discover and create during the last two weeks of July, Monday through Friday, July 20-24 and 27-31. The fee for a day long class is $35 with all supplies furnished.
Each morning begins when campers--ages eight to fourteen, dressed to get messy—arrive with a sack lunch and coins for a juice. The day’s classes commence at 10 a.m. At noon, everyone gathers for lunch on the big porch followed by fun on the Great Lawn. Afternoon class time concludes with pick-up at 3 p.m.
artCentral’s twelve artCamp educators are either recognized working artists, experts in their media, or public and private school teachers. Several are both professional artist and school teacher. The artCamp curriculum of thirty-four classes includes an exciting range of explorations in various medium and creative approaches. This year’s schedule has portrait painting, drawing and dream catcher making taught by Carthage High School art teachers Cheryl Church and Tom Jones. Beth Lawson will offer variations of her always popular stitch work classes, as well as Zentangle designing on canvas. Painting of pets, birds, butterflies and forest animals will be taught by April Davis. Kahlie Jones will teach African drum, paper quill and coiled bowl classes. Different versions of art book construction will be taught by Deb Bentlage, Sean Fitzgibbon and Cindy Head. Anne-Marie Gailey and Sarah Serio will share their sculpture, design and Chinese brush painting expertise.
This year artCampers will have two opportunities to display and share their work. For the first Friday of artCamp, artCamper creations will be on view at the Historic Downtown Carthage Art Walk. For artCamp’s closing Friday, an artCamp Reception and Exhibition, for campers, family and friends, will be held in the Main Gallery of Hyde House.
