Kids Creativity Camp to be held at William Woods University

Children in the Fulton
area will have an
opportunity to express their artistic
side through fun activities during the Kemper Kids Summer
Creativity Camp at William Woods University in July.
 
The camp for children in kindergarten
through fifth grade will be hosted
by the Mildred Cox Gallery and held in the Gladys
Woods Kemper Center for the Arts.
 
Jennifer Sain, gallery coordinator, said students will be “inspired
to use their imagination,
create art and have fun.”
 
The camp will consist of three
weeklong sessions,
running Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Session one,
“Green Art,” begins July 9 and focuses on
creating art by repurposing recycled items. The second session, “Artist
Colony,” runs July 16-20 and concentrates on traditional art methods. The camp
ends with its third
session, “Artrageous,” July 23-27, during which kids will “get crazy”
with messy fun art such as paper mache and tie-dye.
 
Children will also have
the opportunity to create puppets and plays, explore the radio station
and broadcasting studio on the university’s campus, create outdoor projects,
play games, watch movies and participate in interactive
storytelling time. At the end of the session, the children’s
artwork will be
displayed in the Mildred
M. Cox Gallery.
 
The fee for each session is
$150 and includes all
arts and crafts materials, a camp t-shirt, snacks
and drinks. A $25 discount applies
to multiple week attendees, additional children and
William Woods employees. For more information or to register your child, contact

The registration deadline is June 1.
