What: Summer Art Camp with artist Troy Hawkins from HawkMan Studios

Ages: 8 to 12

In Summer Art Camp, artist Troy Hawkins will keep creative minds active during the long break from school. Each week, students will work on four projects in different mediums. Each week has a different theme, so students experiencing all eight weeks will complete 32 different projects in different mediums to show off at home. Kids will paint, draw, sculpt, take photographs and create recycled art — just to name a few of the projects that will get their hands dirty and their minds moving! Students need to bring a sack lunch and 2 snacks each day.

    Maddie did several of Troy's camps last summer and had a blast! She never wanted to go home – it was that much fun! I even have framed a beautiful fish print that she made, and it is hanging in my home. Makes me wish I was in the 8-12 range!
