There is something new and exciting happening at the Artisan Depot in Cowan, this summer!
The Franklin County Arts Guild is hosting a summer Art Camp for Kids the week of June 24-28, and there are still spots available. The cost is $125.
This camp is geared towards kids ages 8-12 who are interested in getting their creative juices flowing and having fun. The theme for the week is Natural World, Natural Me. Campers will develop observation and imagination skills while learning art techniques that include papier-mache, drawing, painting, printing, mixed media and weaving. To celebrate our time together at camp there will be a Camper Art Show on the last day for families and friends to come support the kids and see their work.
Two local artist/art educators will be leading this camp, Pippa Browne and Tanya Ingvoldstad Otero.
Pippa Browne is a fine artist who has exhibited paintings nationally and internationally for the last 30 years. She taught Art to Middle and High schoolers in Zimbabwe for 10 years and, since coming to the USA, she has designed and lead creativity workshops for adults and young people at schools, libraries, galleries and festivals.
Tanya Ingvoldstad Otero is a creative artist who has taught art to young children through adults in formal classes, workshops and camps over the past 20 years. In addition to having fun, her desire is to encourage kids to find joy and meaning in their own creative expression.
Our hope is to connect with area youth and families and encourage more art and creativity in our community.
