Spring Break ARTS Camp @ Deer Lick Park | Douglasville | Georgia | United States
The Cultural Arts Council Douglasville/ Douglas County and the Douglas County Department of Parks and Recreation join forces once again to offer the fifteenth annual intensive arts camp at Deer Lick Park, during spring break, from Monday, April 2nd, through Friday, April 6th.   Children, 7 – 11 years old, will spend a productive spring break exploring a wide variety of art disciplines with four expert and experienced teaching artists –Nicole Hale (3D art),  Joi Jamison (dance), Courtnee Miles (drama) and Cristhtian Perez-Molina (2D art and mixed media). During the Spring Break 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 theme this year is:  Let’s Make Magic Happen.  The camp concludes with a Celebration of Success – a small reception to take place on Friday, April 6th, 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 dance and drama skills learned during the week as well as the student’s artwork in a temporary exhibit put together by the visual arts teachers. 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.
