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 week.
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.
