Hands-on Art Camp for holiday fun

Give the gift from the heART with handmade crafts and treats made in our Holiday Hands-On Art Camp.

This winter break have your child share the joy of making handmade Christmas gifts at our Holiday Hands-On Arts Camp with art teachers Lisa Brown and Tessie Garcia.  During the second session of camp we will delve into some of our favorite art lessons. These include drawing, painting and winter themed crafts.

The dates for the first session are Dec. 20-23 and the cost for the week is $120, or $35 for a daily drop-off rate.

The second session’s dates are Dec. 27-30.

Classes will be held at the Pagosa Springs Elementary Art Room.

This program is for students in first to sixth grades. Full-day sessions run 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m.

Early registration is encouraged. Class is limited to 20 students per day. Daily space depends on availability — first come, first served. Students need to wear comfortable older clothes and they need to bring winter gear, a snack, water, lunch and a good artitude!

Print out a registration form at our website, www.hands-on-artscamp, or look for it coming home with your child this week from the elementary school.

Also, our motto is “Art for a Greener World.” We encourage and educate students to reuse, reduce and recycle. We would appreciate the following items for our classes: Used Wool sweaters (90-100 percent wool) for making hats and mittens, and colored socks for our snowman sculpture.

For more information call Lisa at 731-3546 or Tessie at 731-9244 or 769-4212. The best time to reach them is in the evening. Also, information on the camp can be found on the website.

Hands-On Arts Camp is sponsored by FolkWest and Pagosa Springs Elementary School.
