Kids Creativity Camp to be held at William Woods University

Children in mid-Missouri 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 5 to 13 will be hosted
by the Mildred Cox Gallery and held in the Gladys
Woods Kemper Center for the Arts.
“Kemper Kids is more than just
an art camp,” Jennifer Sain, gallery coordinator and program director, 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, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Youngsters can choose to attend one, two or
three sessions. This year, before- and after-care will be offered 8 to 9 a.m. and 4 to 5 p.m. for $25 per
Campers experience age-appropriate activities to challenge
and inspire. Classes are divided into distinct
artist-inspired themes by age: Kahlo Kids, ages 5-7; Picasso Crew,
ages 8-10 and Dali
Posse, ages 11-13.
Session one, “Hip to be Green,” begins July 8. Children will learn to
sculpt, paint and up-cycle, using their
imaginations.  The second session, “Wild
Things,” runs July 15-19. Youngsters will create
creatures from a variety of media. The camp
ends with its third
session, “Artrageous,” July 22-26, during which kids will “get crazy”
with messy fun art such as tie-dye, spray paint and balloon blast.
At the end of each weekly
session, the children’s
artwork will be
displayed in the Mildred
M. Cox Gallery and a reception for family and friends will be held
from 4:30 to 5 p.m.
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
