The Nanaimo Art Gallery, 900 Fifth Street location, will offer the last four-day children’s summer art day-camp from August 17 to 20, 2010. Camp instructors are all professional artists. For the 7 to 14 year age group, the August 17-20 morning workshops feature ‘Guerrilla Artfare’ using banners, T-shirts, buttons, and other creations which teach how to use art as a way to make a positive change. The afternoon ‘Nation Creation’ workshops give students the opportunity to create a nation from their own imagination using mixed media such as architecture, creatures, and money.
The total cost of the four day-long art camps is $170 plus HST. The cost of just doing four mornings or four afternoons is $85 plus HST. Sibling discounts are $280 plus HST for two siblings attending the full four days or $150 plus HST for siblings attending only morning or afternoons. Payment must be made prior to the start of camp. To register either drop by the Nanaimo Art Gallery VIU campus location (weekdays 10 am to 5 pm) or give Jacqueline a call at 250-740-6350.
