Arts Council hosting two camps in July
Camp Creative is back for its second year at the Arts Center. “The name symbolizes what we are providing for our students, which is a platform for creativity,” said Bruce Douglas, Executive Director of BCAC. Instructor Leslie Pinto commented, “Summer camps are just as exciting for teachers as children. Spending time with children as they express themselves through art is something that I enjoy. I also take pride in helping them explore different types of art.”
The first week will be July 13-17 and will be for rising 3rd through rising 6th graders. Campers will learn and work in many different media and styles, including: clay, decorative tiles, paper-maché, mosaics, painting, and more. Sessions on acting and jazz will also be incorporated.
The second week will be held from July 20-24 and will be for rising 1st, 2nd, 7th, & 8th graders. Just like the students in the first week, these campers will learn and work with a variety of art genres and media.
The camp will be a great way for students to spend a week of their summer vacation. It will also provide young people who are in town with relatives to meet some new friends.
The camps will conclude with a reception in the Jean & James Fort Gallery at the Arts Center. Family of the campers are invited to attend.
Cost for the camp will be $50 per student, with supply costs being included in the fee. Both camps will meet from 9am to noon, Monday through Friday. For more information, call Bruce Douglas at 843.332.6234 or visit Black Creek Arts Center at 116 West College Avenue in Hartsville.
