Summer is getting an artistic spin this year thanks to Thomasville Center for the Arts’ fresh camp lineup.
Beginning next week, the Center’s Art Explorers Summer Camp is partnering with artist and FSU professor Kevin Curry to take campers on a creative journey to discover how art, geometry and technology are interconnected.
“This is such a fun, unique experience for our campers,” said Sarah Painter, education curator at the Center.
“We’ll be working on creative projects all week that challenge our campers artistic side as well as their problem-solving abilities. I think this camp is the perfect fit for any child, ages six to 12, who loves to learn and be creative.”
Camp will be held June 3rd – 7th, and runs from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. at Thomasville Center for the Arts Downtown, located at 209 W. Remington Avenue.
At the end of the week, each camper will take home a 3-D bust of themselves – custom printed by Curry.
“Kevin Curry has worked in the fine arts field throughout the country, specializing in innovative sculptural work that explores the idea of location and memory,” said Darlene Crosby Taylor, public art and exhibitions director. “He is so excited to work with our explorers and share his expertise.”
Other artistic adventures include creating geometric string art, collage mapping, and painting rocks.
After the camp is complete, a celebratory opening reception for the students’ work will take place on Friday, June 7th from 12 – 1 p.m. Finished works will be exhibited in the Youth Gallery at the Center, alongside the work of Curry’s exhibition: Tripping Over the Same Stone.
