Campers get creative at BIG Arts this summer

By Staff | Jul 13, 2011

Middle school students created puppets for performance during BIG Arts Summer Arts Camp.

Summer means a lot of fun things for kids to do on Sanibel, and one of them is Arts Camp. Two programs are available at BIG ARTS Center, both held Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. now through July 29.

Children entering grades kindergarten through fifth in the fall will participate in activities including painting, ceramics, drama and movement. Arts and music appreciation, weekly projects and interactive stage productions encourage interest and wonder in the arts.

Next week, some campers will make palm frond masks, create self-portraits and work with clay. Tuition for K through 5 students is $130 per week. If reserving three or more weeks, the cost is $115 per week.

The fine arts apprentice program for middle and high school students includes fused glass, mosaic, acting and improvisation, ceramics, puppet making, acrylic painting and photography.

Middle school tuition is $75 per week. Call BIG ARTS for middle school volunteer opportunities.

Also, tuition assistance is available. Contact BIG ARTS for an application.

BIG ARTS Summer Arts Camp sponsors are the L.A.T. Foundation and the Sanibel-Captiva Kiwanis Foundation.
