Kids will get creative

Kids can get creative at the Campbell River art gallery

Artists Mary Deveau and Shannon McKirgan will be teaching the ‘Fabulous Art’ summer camp

The Campbell River Art Gallery is offering two creative week-long camps for children ages 7 to 12 this summer.

Artists Mary Deveau and Shannon McKirgan will be teaching the ‘Fabulous Art’ summer camp, Monday, July 15 to Friday, July 19 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

Budding artists will have an opportunity to investigate a variety of materials, including paint, collage materials, clay, pencil and much more.

Kids should be prepared to make a mess as they become immersed in creating.

Learn more about famous artists like Picasso, Mattise and Pollock while exploring mark making, colour theory and the many properties of clay.

Each day will also include some outside time to “get the wiggles out.” All supplies are included.

From Monday, Aug. 12 to Friday, Aug. 16, kids can take part in the ‘Art Extravaganza’ summer camp with artists Keely Chadwick and Jessica Blue. Students will work with a variety of tools and techniques and will also have a chance to work outside, so they’re inspired by Campbell River’s natural beauty. This will be an art camp of extravagant proportions!

Students are asked to bring an article of white or light-coloured clothing, like a shirt or socks, for a tie dye activity.

All other materials are provided. This camp also runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The cost for each camp is $175 for CR Art Gallery members and $185 for non-members.
