Freed-Hardeman to Host Fine Arts Camp for Children
Children can experience a safari to the Wild Side of Art with the upcoming Fine Arts Camp at Freed-Hardeman University. The camp, open to children ages 5-11, is set for May 23-26 from 8:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. in the Bulliner-Clayton Visual Arts Center. Directed by Drs. Richard and Barbara England, the camp will include both art and music activities.
During the week, children will work on a variety of crafts centered on the safari theme. Some of the crafts include construction of masks, binoculars, lions, tigers and monkeys. Playing games and making creepy, crawly jungle bugs are also planned.
The music portion of fine arts camp will explore how rhythm, harmony, and melodic lines are used to make music. The campers will learn how to read music, enjoy music videos that teach the different types of instruments in the orchestra, and learn how computers can be used to write their own music. Campers will also learn songs and how to play simple tunes on the recorder.
The Englands will be assisted by college students in art and music education classes, providing for a great deal of individual attention. The cost is $50 per child and covers all supplies and a t-shirt. Sibling discounts are available. Camp participants will showcase their hard work on Thursday afternoon in the Black Box Theatre with an art exhibit and musical performance.
The number of campers is limited so reservations should be made early, according to Barbara England. For more information email email@example.com or call 989-6079.
