Tryon Arts and Crafts School will once again offer a one-of-a-kind summer camp experience in the arts. Each week professional artists will introduce the students to at least eight different arts and crafts.
Organizers said students will have the opportunity to discover hidden talents, learn about many art forms and experience the joy of creating works of art to share with family and friends. The children will have the opportunity to work with professional grade tools in a well-equipped studio as they complete their projects.
This year’s classes include: pottery, fused glass, weaving, pastel painting, woodworking, jewelry making, storytelling, silk painting, basketry, tie dye, mask making, glass mosaics, felting, paper making and pen and ink watercolor. At least eight of these topics will be presented during each of the five weeks of camp.
Camp dates are: July 9-13, July 16-20, July 23-27, July 30-Aug. 3 and Aug. 6-10.
Classes run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a lunch break. Students should bring a lunch, a snack and a drink and are encouraged to wear clothing that they don’t have to worry about so that creativity can flow unhindered. Each week will conclude with a show of student work on Friday afternoon. Doors will be open from 8:30am to 5:30pm for student drop off and pick up.
Summer Sizzler is designed for students 10 and older. Advanced registration is required. Class size is limited. Call Tryon Arts & Crafts School at 828-859-8323 to register or for more information.
