R-H Staff



EATON — The Preble County Art Association is offering art camps April 2- April 6, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Visual Art Center. With school out for Spring Break, it’s a perfect time to have fun and get creative at the art center. Parents can sign up kids ages 5-12 for one day, or all five. The cost is $30 per day member $38 per day for a nonmember. Anyone is eligible to purchase a PCAA membership.

Students in 7th grade or higher may apply to volunteer as camp assistants. Doors will open at 8:30 a.m. each morning for drop off convenience but kids may want to bring an activity to occupy themselves until the 9 a.m. start time. PCAA will provide both a morning and afternoon snack but campers will need to bring their own lunch.

Camp themes are as follows:

Monday, April 2: Play and Clay

Campers are going to get playful with all things clay! Kids will use their imagination to build and experiment with clay all day long!

Tuesday, April 3: The Secret Life of Pets

Pets will be the muse for camp today. Campers will create masterpieces from paint, collage, and mixed media all about the animals they love. There will even be real live pet interactions at the art center to serve as inspiration.

Wednesday, April 4: Wild for Art

Camp is about to get wild. The great outdoors and wild animals will be the inspiration for today’s camp. Kids will get their hands dirty, creating collages and exploring new artistic techniques in this nature inspired camp.

Thursday, April 5: Create and Cook

Who says you can’t play with your food? This camp is all about making art you can eat and creating fun sculptures and paintings inspired by our favorite snacks.

Friday, April 6: Color Explosion

Today is all about color. Kids will explore colorful experiments from unconventional materials, make bright paintings, and of course there will be tie dye.

Registrations must be made in advance and can be done online at www.preblearts.org or in person at the Visual Art Center. Registrations for Monday, April 2 must be made by Thursday, March 29.
