The Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County (CAA) announces the return of Creative Kids Camp, a series of week-long visual arts camp sessions designed to give primary, elementary, and middle school-aged children a different daily hands-on experience.
Camp sessions are scheduled Monday through Friday with a different age group served each week. Primary sessions for ages 4-6 run June 10 – 14 and July 15 – 19 from 9am – 12pm. Elementary sessions for ages 7-9 will run June 17 – 21 and July 22 – 26 from 9am – 2pm. Middle school sessions for ages 10-13 will run June 24 – 28 and July 29 – August 2 from 9am – 2pm. Creative Kids Camps take place in the CAA’s Bayou Arts Center located at 105 Hogtown Bayou Lane in Santa Rosa Beach.
Creative Kids Camp lead instructor Sue Davis is a former school teacher who incorporated arts education into her twelve years of teaching preschool and elementary aged students in Destin and Tallahassee. Sue and Pottery instructor Stacy Martin will lead students in various projects throughout each week, including two pottery hand-building projects where they will tour the CAA’s new pottery studio and learn the basics of glazing and firing pottery. Campers will learn how to work with a variety of mediums and use different techniques so that they go home at the end of the week with a diverse portfolio of work.
Early bird pricing of $175 – $200 per child is available now for each five-day session, and space is limited. Early bird registrants will not be charged ticketing fees for additional cost savings. Prices will increase to $200 – $250 per child one week in advance of each camp session, and daily drop-in registrations will be available as well. Multiple week discounts apply per child. All supplies are included. Registration is available online at CulturalArtsAlliance.com. Students should be dressed for a fun and messy art experience and should come to class with a peanut-free lunch and water bottle. Snacks will be provided.
