FREE summer camp for kids at Museum of the Big Bend!

This summer, thanks to a generous donation from Mr. & Mrs. Johnny and Anne Weisman, the Museum of the Big Bend is pleased to offer 4 Weeks of Summer Art Camp to area and visiting children at no charge.  The camp, "A BEAUTIFUL MESS: Found Object Crafting" will focus on the arts and crafts of creating ecological and cultural art projects utilizing diverse mediums by working with paper, fabric, metal and found objects.

Four 1-Week Monday through Fridays sessions begin June 9 - 13 (Ages 5 to 7), June 16 - 20 (Ages 8 to 10), July 7 - 11 (Ages 5 to 7) and July 14 - 18 (Ages 8 - 10). Times are 9:00 a.m. to noon.  At the end of Summer Art Camp on Friday, July 18th, artwork created by campers will be on exhibit and celebrated with an Opening Family Friendly Reception from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.  This event will be held in conjunction with the Museum of the Big Bend summer exhibit opening of BERYL.

Although ART CAMP is free of charge, all campers must register in advance as space is limited.  To register or learn more, please call (432) 837-8143 or email jennifer.jordan@sulross.edu<
