Minden City Art Works will host a summer art camp for children ages 7-16, at 701 Main Street in downtown Minden.
The elementary camp will be June 15-19 and will be divided into a morning and afternoon session. The morning session for children ages 7-9 will be from 10 a.m. until noon each morning. The afternoon session for children ages 10-12 will be from 2 until 4 p.m. each afternoon. Each student will complete a work of “rock art” to take home.
Local artists Larry Milford and Jeanne Mason will direct the senior high art camp June 22-26 from 5 until 7:30 p.m. each evening. Again, each student will complete a work of “rock art” to take home.
“The city is excited to once again offer summer recreation in the arts for interested children,” said Mayor Tommy Davis.
Director of this year’s elementary division will be Anita Goodson. A welcome new addition to the art camp staff is Jim Croad, the art instructor at Minden High School.
Please dress your children in clothing appropriate for painting and craft work, i.e. an old t-shirt or shirt. Each child will need to bring a drink and snack each day.
There will be a $10, nonrefundable supply fee for all students participating. There is limited enrollment on a first come, first serve basis. Deadline to register is Friday, May 29, at 4 p.m. at City Art Works or at Minden City Hall.
Registration forms are available at Minden City Hall, 520 Broadway St., or City Art Works. Forms can also be printed online at www.mindenusa.com/mainstreet. The registration fee will increase to $20 for late enrollees, provided space is available following the May 29 deadline.
City Art Works is open every Wednesday through Friday from noon until 5:30 p.m. and on Saturday, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Minden City Hall is open from 7:30 a.m. until 4 p.m.
