The Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County recently announced the launch of its newest program for children, Creative Kids Camp.
The camp is a series of four-day visual arts sessions that will give primary and elementary children a different hands-on experience each week.
Camp sessions are Monday through Thursday and run June 19-22, June 26-29, July 10-13, July 17-20 and July 24-27. Primary sessions are for ages 4-6 and take place from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. each day. Elementary sessions are for ages 7-12 and take place from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. each day.
Creative Kids Camp are held in the the Alliance’s Foster Gallery located at 560 Grand Boulevard, Suite 101 in Grand Boulevard’s Town Center (across from the fountains at Grand Park).
Lead instructor and artist Molly Huffman recently moved to Santa Rosa Beach from Louisville, Kentucky, where she spent the past three years as the visual and gallery director at Revelry Boutique Gallery. With a degree in non-profit leadership and management, Molly is experienced in youth advocacy and community development. She was also a Montessori pre-school assistant teacher and has a strong background working with and on behalf of children.
Molly will teach the campers how to work with a variety of mediums and use different techniques so that each student goes home with a diverse portfolio of work.
Each four-day session is $150 per child, and space is limited.
Students should be dressed for a fun and messy art experience and should come to class with a peanut-free snack and drink.
