The Lake Chapala Society Children’s Art Program is holding its 7th Annual Art Camp from Monday, July 29 to Friday, August 2.
This annual summer project wouldn’t be possible without the generous financial support of the Ajijic Society of the Arts (ASA) and the dedication of its members, who come every day to help with the workshops.
Workshops offered this year include acrylics, watercolor, abstract, mosaics, tissue paper flowers, projects with foam, drawing, painting, blankets, wind socks and alebrijes/papel maché. There are also daily projects for the little ones.
Children age five and under must be accompanied by an adult. The camp can accommodate about 130 children and runs from 10 a.m. to noon each day.
Some workshops are already full and there are waiting lists for many of the others. Children who attend the Art Program’s Saturday classes will be given registration priority. The kids are offered a small snack at the end of each day.
A sale of art created by children during the workshops will be held in the LCS gazebo Saturday, August 3, from 10 a.m. to noon.
The camps are usually very well attended. Last year, about 125 kids attended each day. Volunteers agree that this yearly event is a rewarding experience.
