Kids ages 5 to 13 can revel in three summer camp sessions announced by the Columbus Arts Council for the month of June. Each week has a unique theme and class schedule designed to spur creativity in a fun, stimulating environment. Professional artists, educators and those who love the arts will take part in teaching a variety of classes at the Rosenzweig Arts Center in downtown Columbus.
From June 6-10, participants in "Easy Being Green" will take part in activities that explore recycling, the environment and local foods.
"It''s a Small World" is the theme for the June 13-17 session, involving artists, art and culture from around the world.
The "Rhythm and Blues" week June 20-24 will teach campers about the origins of music specific to our area, in anticipation of the Smithsonian Exhibit, "New Harmonies," coming to the Arts Center in October.
Throughout the month, arts and crafts, theater, ceramics and dance will be offered, as well as other educational activities.
Campers can attend weekly sessions, or may attend the morning or afternoon portions of camp. Camp hours are from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Catered lunches and extended care are also available for an additional fee.
Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis, upon receipt of payment. Early registration is encouraged. Complete class schedules and descriptions are available at columbus-arts.com.
The Rosenzweig Arts Center is located at 501 Main St. For more information, contact the Columbus Arts Council at 662-328-2787 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
