Press Release

The South Arkansas Arts Center is thrilled to announce three action-packed summer art camps for kids! Join the SAAC art teachers as they team up for an unforgettable adventure of creativity, experimentation, and artistic expression.

The first Art Camp for kids in grades 1-9 will run from June 17-21, featuring the artistic team of Michaela Gross, Mike Means, and Katie Harwell. The second Art Camp, also for grades 1-9, will follow from June 24-28, led by Nicole McAdams, Mike Means, and Katie Harwell. Both June art camps will meet daily from 9am to 12pm, providing a unique opportunity for students to work with multiple art teachers throughout the week. Each day, students will spend an hour with a different teacher, exposing them to a variety of artistic styles and techniques. This dynamic approach allows students to discover new skills and perspectives, while fostering creativity and self-expression.

In July, Gross and McAdams will be teaming up again to teach a Mini Art Camp for children Age 3-6 during the week of July 22-25. The four-day mini camp will meet from 10am to 12pm Monday through Thursday.

“Summer camp’s projects are just more fun!,” said art instructor Katie Harwell. The summer art camps are designed to be an engaging experience for kids, allowing them to explore their artistic side in a supportive environment. With a talented team of art teachers leading the way, students will have the opportunity to develop their skills and learn new techniques while having fun.
