Art On The Square - Children's Art Camp
Art On the Square
On June 9,2009, AOTS, sponsored a children's visual art camp for students in grades 1-6.
AOTS also will host an art auction on August 8 at Carole Foret's Fine art gallery that celebrates art and artists. AOTS offers an art festival on September 12, that supports the arts and allows artists to sell their fine creations on the Courthouse grounds. During this September festival, AOTS provides over 20 mini art camps that allow children to freely express their creativity.
Art On The Square does all of this and more with a community of dedicated volunteers like Gail Bergeron, Professor of Art at Athens State University, who helped teach art at this summer art camp sponsored by Art On The Square. Ms.Bergeron is helping Jeremiah, a student from the local Boys and Girls Club, who received a scholarship from AOTS to attend. Each child who participated in this camp, took two completed projects home. 37 children participated.
Art On The Square will hold a film camp on June 27,2009 for grades 7-12. They are also working on a film festival for Fall 2009.
