ASU Art Camp Offers Youth Chance to Unleash the Artist Inside
Youth ages 12 and older can master the art of drawing and can build upon their artistic talents in Angelo State University's Summer Art Camp being offered in July at the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts.
Sponsored by ASU's Division of Continuing Studies, the Art Camp will run 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, Monday through Friday, July 16-20. The camp will provide instruction on various drawing techniques. Through the program students can discover patience, discipline, a capacity for accurate observation, recall and sensitivity. No experience is necessary to enroll or to be successful.
Connie Parmer, a local artist, will teach Art Camp. She has studied under a variety of professionals. She has 40 years of art training and study with various media and has taught landscape and oil painting. Parmer's works have been exhibited at Angelo State University, the Tom Green County Library and the First Christian Church of San Angelo.
The five-day camp will conclude on Friday, July 20, with a reception for participants and their family and friends. At the reception participants will display the artwork they have created during the week, including a framable charcoal drawing.
Cost for the camp is $180 and includes instruction, art supplies, lunch each day, a bag for supplies and the closing reception. For additional information or to register, contact ASU's Division of Continuing Studies, (325) 942-2339.
