Last year, a bunch of us art-loving folk gathered at my home church for something brand new – a day-long workshop-style arts camp for kids. I called it “Illuminate,” to encourage children to remember their creativity is a gift from the Creator which allows them to share his light with their world. It was, admittedly, a bit of an experiment. Would busy families give up a Saturday for our little ole’ attempt to celebrate the good, truthful, and beautiful through creativity and imagination?
Well, we were gobsmacked by the turnout. Nearly 40 campers, ages 7-15, showed up for a day of drawing, music, storytelling, pottery, and sculpting. It was a blast!
Well, long story short, we had so much fun at last year’s Illuminate Arts Camp, that we’re doing it again in 2016!
There will be lots more details coming soon, but suffice it to say we’re adding new teachers, new workshops, and planning on having a whole lot more fun and making a lot of memories. I can’t wait to share all the exciting developments with you, but for now, head over to IlluminateArts.Wordpress.com for the details.
Illuminate Arts Camp 2016 is on!
