A sizzling summer of Arty fun is waiting for children at CNY Arts Center’s Third annual Arty Day Camp.
The camp has two sessions: July 14-18 and Aug. 11-15. The location is the CNY Arts Center at 357 State St. at the Methodist Church in Fulton.
The camp offers students a choice of art, writing, dance and theater classes along with lunch and afternoon group art projects from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“Arty Camp has become a summer time tradition and we look forward to more children enjoying art instruction, dance and theatre classes,” said Alice Lamb, camp director.
“Art classes allow children to explore techniques and find new ways to express their creativity,” Lamb said. “Our dance class focuses on specific dance styles and theater classes take children to another form of artistic expression while having a lot of fun.”
“Our hands-on art afternoons have grown in size and scale including art projects.” Lamb continued. “Children will recycle ordinary objects into art in a variety of ways and create new art using special techniques adaptable to all ages.”
CNY Arts Center is also designated as a Summer Meal Site to offer free lunches to community children 18 and under during the weeks of ARTY Day Camp.
Children who attend the lunch will be included in afternoon hands-on art projects at no charge. Children in the afternoon program should pre-register at CNYArtsCenter.com.
