Summer Art Camp Fun

IMG_5086

 

Summer is the best time for camps and in Excelsior Springs, there’s no lack for getting involved!¬†Starting this week, Mackenzie will have two weeks filled with day-long art classes, which she’s been going to for the last three or four years. The Art Camp was started by Roberta Hammer, a local artist who Mackenzie takes lessons from weekly throughout the year. She inspires the students to try different mediums and often inspire them with the nature that surrounds them here daily. Roberta is the heart and soul behind the Art Camp at the Good Samaritan Center and the ongoing Art Room that meets weekly on early-release days from school. We are so grateful to have her in our community giving her time!

This year Jason, my husband, was asked to co-teach the camp and also help with another upcoming art camp to be held at the Good Samaritan Center. Jason has his doctorate in film and animation and has some fun projects lined up to offer the students this week. He, too, is an artist, everyday making custom signs, bags, watercolors, mobiles, or working with Mackenzie on various projects.

There are a number of ways for students to get involved and have fun during the summer here in Excelsior Springs. Whether it’s going to the various art camps, drama camps, reading programs at the library, bible schools, activities in the parks, or swimming at the community center, there’s plenty for kids to do here at home!
