Free summer art camp

Budding young artists will have the opportunity to spend a week among palettes paintbrushes at the National Gallery in July.

A summer arts camp will run from 2 to 5 July, in the Education Centre, and will give youngsters ages 8 to 13 the opportunity to engage in a variety of creative activities and try out different techniques, under the guidance of local artists.

Thanks to sponsorship from Scotiabank, the summer camp is offered free of charge, but spaces are limited to 20. Participants will be accepted on a first come first served basis. Parents can register their children by phone or in person as of Monday, 10 June.

The camp will run from 9.30am to 1pm, Tuesday through Thursday, and all day from 9.30am to 5pm on Friday.

On the Friday, participants will put on a special exhibition of their work at the National Gallery. From 5 to 7pm parents, friends and family will be able to see their creative efforts on display.
