Special to The PREVIEW

It is time again for summer registration at Hands-On Arts Camp for students entering the first through sixth grades.

The camp will run Monday through Thursday beginning in June. Student drop-off is 8:45 a.m.; classes begin at 9 a.m. and go until 1 p.m. in the Pagosa Springs High School art room.

Each week is based on an art theme:

• June 12-15 will be Teacher Faves — Miss Tessie’s and Miss Lisa’s favorite art projects throughout the years.

• June 19-22 will be African-themed art such as batiks and Egyptian mummiforms.

• June 26-29 will be Native American art such as pottery.

The cost of classes for one week is $120 a week or $35 for a daily drop-off. There are many ways to save with tuition based on your needs. Preregister by June 1 and save $10 off each week. There is also a family discount of $10 off for each additional child per week. Or, sign up for two weeks and get the third week half off. Limited partial scholarships are available upon request.

Colorado licensed art instructors Tessie Garcia and Lisa Brown have 52 years of combined experience teaching art.
