Summer Arts Camp 2019 – Presented by The Cultural Arts Council Douglasville/Douglas County @ Hunter Memorial Park
Jun 10 @ 9:00 am – Jun 14 @ 4:00 pm
Summer Arts Camp 2019 - Presented by The Cultural Arts Council Douglasville/Douglas County @ Hunter Memorial Park

he Cultural Arts Council Douglasville/ Douglas County and the City of Douglasville Parks and Recreation join forces once again to offer the annual intensive summer arts camp at Hunter Park, from Monday, June 10th through Friday, June 14th. Children, 7 – 11 years old, will spend a productive week exploring a wide variety of art disciplines with four expert and experienced teaching artists.

The goal of the Summer Arts Camp is to encourage and reveal the talents of every student to highlight the impact the arts have on young children in developing their creative skills, social interactions and cultural awareness.

Fees for the week are $125 for the first child ($115 for CAC members) with a $5 dollar discount for siblings. Camp runs from 9 am – 4 pm with an early drop off and late pick up option for an additional fee. Space is limited. Registration can be done in person or by visiting the Arts Council website – www.artsdouglas.org.

During the Summer Arts Camp, artists will work with each student on specific projects within their discipline that reflect and expand on a common theme addressed by all the teachers. The camp concludes with a Celebration of Success – a small reception to take place on Friday, June 14th, from 5 until 6 pm., to which the public is invited. Attendees at the Celebration of Success will have the opportunity to witness a memorable performance featuring the performing arts skills learned during the week as well as the student’s artwork in a temporary exhibit put together by the visual arts teachers.

The 2019 Summer Arts Camp is made possible with the support from the GreyStone Power Foundation. The Cultural Arts Council Douglasville/ Douglas County, located at 8652 Campbellton Street Douglasville, Georgia, is open Mondays through Fridays, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm For directions and more information, visit www.artsdouglas.org or contact the Cultural Arts Council at 770.949.2787.
