Artsy kids will have some fun at camp

The Campbell River Art Gallery is hosting an upcoming five-day art extravaganza for kids ages 7-12

Kids who love to create can immerse themselves in art at a five-day Art Extravaganza camp at the Campbell River Art Gallery Aug. 11-15.

The focus at the camp, for ages 7-12, will be on fun with instructor Laurie Taylor helping students discover and express their individuality while learning new techniques.

The group will work with a wide variety of supplies, including paper, paint, markers and collage, with an emphasis on found and recycled materials. This week of creativity will also include daily outside activities, a field trip, local artistic inspiration and much more.

The cost for gallery members is $175 or $185 for non-members and all supplies are included. The camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.. Monday to Friday.
