Space is still available in Waterfall Arts’ exceptional Art Camps for ages 8 to 12 and scholarship funds are available as well. Week 1 of Art Camp is July 11 through 15 and Week 2 is July 18 to 22, Monday through Friday from 9am to 3 pm each day. There is a 10% discount if two siblings register for either week of camp.
Popular instructor Bridget Matros leads the camps and says, “Art Camp at Waterfall Arts can’t be beat! Kids get to work with several teaching artists in all kinds of media, including time in our clay and print studios. We also paint, build, draw, collage, weave, and play fun games! We go large-scale and take our creativity outside whenever possible. Our seasoned instructors create a one-of-a-kind, memorable experience that “locks in” learning while creating bonds between young artists in the comfort of a “judgement free zone.” We know everyone has different work styles and favorites and not everyone feels confident as a “great artist”… no worries, we’re here to have fun!”
More information on the camps and other classes, scholarship applications and online registration is available at waterfallarts.org or by calling the office at 338-2222 or stopping by the arts center. Office and gallery hours are 10 to 5 Tuesday through Friday.
