Summer Art Camp June 22-26, 2015
Adventures In The Arts

The Hampshire County Arts Council (HCAC) and the West Virginia Schools for the Deaf and the Blind (WVSDB) presented Adventures in the Arts, an enriching adventure that will engage children in exciting art activities in this action-packed week.  For many this was a first-time experience in some of the art forms offered and perhaps the catalyst for a passion for a new hobby or launching a budding career.  

Our instructors, working with staff from WVSDB, are distinguished local artists as well as some from out of state who donated their time and expertise to make this an educational and fun-filled camp.     

Some highlights of the week's activities are shown here.
