United Way Fine Art Camps
Celebrate the Arts
Instructor Kathy Nelson
Our Fine Arts Camps are packed with fun and challenging activities that encourage creativity and growth for a lifetime. Campers will explore a variety of mediums such as graphite, paint, pastels, charcoal, sculptural materials, found objects, and much more. Each week includes art instruction, hand-building in clay, dance & drama, and a visiting guest artist. On Friday from 1 pm to 2 pm, campers will perform their group dance & drama piece and display their works of art in a gallery style setting. We welcome families and friends to attend the Friday events. Camps include morning and afternoon instruction in art, music, dance, and theater. All camps work with pottery.
