SUMMER ART CAMP.png

Join us for an Eric Carle inspired Art Camp at the 1911 Historic City Hall Arts and Cultural Center!

 

Tuesday, June 14 - Thursday, June 16

 

During this camp, children will create art inspired by author Eric Carle. We will read and explore the literature of Eric Carle, then work with paint and canvas to show off how we interpret the same elements from the books. Children will also have supervised tours of the exhibits at Historic City Hall while attending the camp.

 

The camp takes place Tuesday, June 14-Thursday, June 16. Camp participants will have their art on display in the first-floor exhibit hall on Friday, June 17, where they will be able to show off their masterpieces during an open house art show.

It is a community resource of programs and activities, all built around learning through play and providing access for all children and their caregivers. As a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, our mission is facilitated by the support of our staff, board, and volunteers, along with the generosity of individual and corporate donations.
