Summer Art Camps to take Place in July
Lee University’s summer art camps will take place July 10-14 and July 17-21 for students entering K-12th grade.
There are three art camps available to choose from, along with a choice of morning or afternoon sessions for each camp. The three camps are Beginners Camp, Art Explorers Camp, and Art Insights Camp.
“Summer is a great time to focus on creative thinking and building art skills. It’s exciting to see how much the students accomplish in one week of art camp, and how that inspires them to continue exploring art on their own.” said Mary Mathias-Dickerson, associate professor of art.
Beginners Camp is for rising K-2nd graders and is taught by Taylor Brannon, a Lee University art alum and local art teacher. Set up as an active artistic learning experience, students will get lots of hands-on time with crafting, painting, drawing, and clay as they learn about artists and nature.
Art Explorers Camp is for rising 2nd-6th graders and is taught by Mary Ann Poplin, a local elementary art teacher. Learning about artists and cultures from around the world, students will create unique works of art using painting, drawing, clay and other art mediums.
Art Insights Camp is for rising 6th-12th graders and is taught by Shanna Calfee, a Lee University art alum and local art teacher. Students will practice a wide variety of art skills as they dive into painting, drawing, clay and 3D projects. There will be a lot of instruction provided and time to experiment.
Parents of rising 2nd graders and rising 6th graders can choose which age group they would like for their child to participate in.
Morning sessions take place from 9 a.m. – noon, and afternoon sessions take place from 1–4 p.m.
All art camps will meet in Mayfield Annex at 1301 Magnolia Ave. NE. The fee is $110 per student with a discount available for those registering siblings.
