Special to The PREVIEW
Each summer, young artists (in the first through sixth grades) from Pagosa Springs and other places gather to do what they love — create art.
If you have a child who enjoys learning about and making art, Hands-On Arts Camp is the place to be. Two certified art teachers, Lisa Brown and Tessie Garcia, each have 24-plus years of knowledge in teaching art and offer a rich art experience for your budding artist.
The first week, Lisa Brown will focus on the art of ancient Egypt — clay Canopic jars, Egyptian portraits, blue hippos, scarab necklaces and more. Tessie Garcia’s class will create a “bird-on-a-wire” sculpture/chime and students will work with other types of clay to their art’s content.
This year, we will be having Hands-On Arts Camp in the middle school art room.
The camp runs the weeks of June 9,16 and 23, and July 7 (Monday-Thursday), with a drop-off time between 8:30 and 9 a.m. Classes will be from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
The cost of the camp is $120/week. This includes instruction and materials. New this year, you can use the convenience of PayPal to pay for Hands-On Arts Camp. Check out our link, www.hands-on-artscamp.com. Hands-On Arts Camp is sponsored by Archuleta School District, FolkWest, Inc. and Parelli.
