WCU to hold visual arts camp for middle school students in July

Western Carolina University’s Office of Professional Growth and Enrichment will hold a three-day visual arts camp for rising sixth- through eighth-grade students beginning Monday, July 17.

In sessions from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., campers will explore art techniques ranging from different usages of color, line, shape and form through collage, painting, drawing, sketching and block printmaking. At the conclusion on Wednesday, July 19, students will showcase their art for special guests, family and friends.

Cost is $79 with limited space available on a first-come, first-served basis, with all materials and lunch at the campus Courtyard Dining Hall included. Needs-based scholarships are available, with more information by contacting Rachel York-Bridgers at rybridgers@wcu.edu or 828-227-3937.
