Applications for Classes
Camp Create!Jun 7th - Jun 25th, 2021 | Main Gallery
The mission of KACC's 2021 summer program for youth, grades 1- 8 - Camp Create! - is to foster creative thinking in young people. It is our intention to train young minds for adult challenges while presenting first-class art instruction in a fun format. We believe there are ways of thinking that can only be learned through the processes of creating art. Critical thinking and creative thinking are two sides of the same coin and should be taught together so that young people can grow up to be creative, successful problem solvers in exciting and challenging times.
This program is sponsored in part by the McLaughlin Doty Foundation and Kerr County Title.
