Summer Arts Camp 2016

PHOTOCongratulations to Anna Hulslander,
winner of 2016 Arts Camp T-shirt Logo contest!

The goal of our Summer Arts Camp program is to help area children improve themselves while having fun engaging in art activities. Involving children in self-expression and creative discovery engenders an enthusiasm for learning that has a positive impact on each child’s development.

Over the past 21 years, the Summer Arts Camp has grown in popularity! Last year more than 100 campers, grades 3 – 8 who participated in this program, had an opportunity to experience not only the visual arts, but also music, dance, and theater arts.

Support provided by Berlin/Ocean City Optimist Club will allow us to offer limited financial assistance. For details how to apply, please call our office at 410-641-0809.

WHAT IS PLEIN AIR?
In the world of Art, Plein Air is an expression from the French which means "in the open air," and is used to describe the act of painting outdoors. Plein Air painting challenges artists to concentrate on the information in front them, and re-create their impression with paint onto canvas in the moment.

WCAC ART SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

The Arts Council will award art scholarships during the 2015 -2016 school year, to qualified students interested in pursuing academic careers in the arts.

Applicants are judged on their visual, dramatic, writing, or musical presentations in the form of DVD, CD, or power point recordings.
